      preflop i called, hoping to hit some good draw, and because it was a small raise compared how deep we were. Maybe it's too lose, i don't know

      On the flop he could have anything, and cbet with it, but worst case we have 3 outs and a bdfd. so I called

      Turn: tried to represent a flush

      river: I played the hand pretty aggressively and he checked both the turn and the river. I think he is folding a lot of better hands here so I bluffed the river

      Hi Botia,

      PReflop: How often do we hit a "good draw"? You are calling versus an EP open so you will face a strong range. Thus I would much rather just fold or at most 3-bet bluff. Our hand is too weak to play versus EP possible nit.

      Postflop: As played why can he have anything? His range is strong so anything that he has is better than our anything.

      The way he played the hand on flop/turn he is usually on Qx+ maybe with a redraw that's afraid of the flush and these guys don't fold those hands on the river (unless it's like AcKx).

      So this way of playing the hand will lose you a ton of money in the long term, at these limits.
