      Villain is a fish. I haven't seen him donk river. This means a flush more often than K7 or Q7?

      Was my cbet on the flop too small?

      Bet larger on every street, 80% pot. Dont fold the river especially for tjose odds.

      1) U need to be good under 25% of the time. Even if he had flushes way more often than worse two pairs it doesnt mean u cant call

      2) im not sure why u dont think he could be bluffing. I think he has a busted straight draw here like JT rly often. In fact more often than him having flushes (he needs a pair or straight draw to call flop.)
