      This opponent made me crazy few times today, but there was nothing similar to this hand....
      I'm sorry, if it doesn't belong here, but it's interesting hand.
      In short:
      - pre-flop play is the worst possible
      - flop play is the best possible
      - turn play is the best possible
      - river is OK I think

      He should have raised the flop or the turn, because you're betting every flop in an unraised pot you could easily be drawing and what are the chances you have a 3 on the turn?? If not raising the flop I'd definitely raise the turn in his position.
      If not the turn I'd definitely raise the river... did you just get running 5s? I don't think so :P

      I'd say he butchered this hand pretty badly overall :D

      you're wrong! He had good feeling on flop & turn, so he decided to calldown :D
