      Flop and Turn play are both fine. River sucks for us. It depends on 4 things

      -Is he retarded enough to shove QX here? And is he tricky enough to turn weak pairs into bluffs?
      -Does he donk-shove for thin value with 2 pairs?
      -How wide is he floating on Flop and Turn? Is he capable of showing up with some sort of busted draw?
      -River AF (River AF for fishes are often very different from Flop and Turn AF)

      1. He occasionally makes stupid plays with QX, and turns stuff like A3 into a bluff
      2. I suppose AA blocks him from having A5, though it's bad that we have Ah which blocks him from having busted nut flush draws
      3. It's bad that he is loose because he will have way more 5X combos than a normal player, but still the board is low.

      I'll probably look at his river aggression, if it's low I'll just fold here. If it's high i would call.
