      I'm really unsure regarding spots of flatting pre flop and their post flop.I think I played it fine but not sure.

      Preflop I assume is mostly to get blinds involved, dk if you have an edge with your hand against his range often enough to call just for that. Tough to say for preflop since I would definitely call when I know where my opponent gives up when he misses, if he ever does. I have to go by the assumption that you had a good reason to call preflop.

      Postflop, I think you played it fine actually. On the turn, you just get very good odds with your combo draw, you don't really need implied odds while river is hard to bluff, you almost never have a set or just TP, you raise some made straights on the turn too (at least are perceived too imo).. Close one because you have little to no showdown value but dk if you have enough FE to bet. My thinking is you don't, maybe if you ship you can convince him to fold most hands. Come to think of it, if you can be quite sure he doesn't check a set here you can probably construct an overbetting range as a 'standard'. Any thoughts on that?

      Hmm, I actualy don't think I like the idea. I think I'm probably get a lot of Hero calls since I don't rep much, and I think he might actually check hands like 44, KQ, KJ, QJ that will have a hard time folding, even to overbet.

      The pre flop spot is not my standard by all means, my idea was to involve the blinds. I have this empirical sense that I win a lot of mwp when a fish overcalls and I'm in the BU. Most of regs play really honest and I can get way with betting vs missed pretty much every time.

      Yeah, regs play quite honest OOP with a fish involved so I agree with that.

      The overbet was just an idea, not really sure if it's the best but it's a spot to put pressure when you know you face a weaker range if you could still rep a good range yourself.
