      Flating pre flop I think is fine. Flop fine too. Is turn call okay? I was planning on folding any river that didn't improve me.

      Hi,

      In general your play should not be good here but your opponent seems to be overly aggressive on flop and turn and drastically switch to passive on river which makes it likely he doesn't bluff river. That is obviously good for you. Knowing that though, I think you can potnetially turn your hand into a bluff to make him fold hands like A8, Q8, TT, 99.. potentially he folds some Jx as well since you can definitely have Kx and BD flush in your range. With TT for example I would check back (if I play the same pre) but 89s seems a bit borderline since he probably barrels turn a bit more than 8x 9 kicker.. That's the thought I get from his high AFq but might be wrong ofc..
