      Hi

      Villain is a pretty big fish on small sample.. 48/20 or someting on 15 hands dunno precisely.

      Now I think looking back at it that I have to bet halfpot turn because some worse hands can call + if we hit we can shove r.

      As played, call river? I think it's close? Some possible floats miss ofc but his bet is also kinda polarizing so I don't think he has Qx or even KT.

      Hi

      Preflop: make it 5, he is a fish and we want to maximise value.

      Turn: this is close, i think we should value bet here cos he has many pair + draw and board is coordinated.

      My general principle is that if our hand is vulnerable (decent number of bad cards which could come on future streets) but we are able to bet for value, do it.

      We definitely have to call river even though we got one of the worst runouts (besides the straight completing.)
