      My plan was to chk/ship turn.

      I think my call river was bad.

      Why is your plan to check/shove turn?

      Even though your opponent is likely to call with worse postflop very often, I think you should still be more inclined to check and turn your hand more into a bluffcatcher. As played, your assumption should be that he floats quite wide on the flop and then calling river is OK since you do beat some of the floating hands like A high overs, BD flushes with overs, etc.

      That said, he has an average fold vs cbet so it's not very likely his range is that wide. Given the odds, calling river still won't be bad but it's not super profitable... my main concern is whether he vbets a hand like T7s on the river.

      In summary, my line would start with checking flop. Preflop was fine btw, he calls way too much, that's why I didn't mention anything about it.
