      I don't like my play here at all. I decided to play against his 3bet because he was 3betting a tonne. on the flop i called because he was cbetting ~90% and i imagined that i was ahead at this point. On the turn i thought "the texture of the board hasn't really changed so I have to call" then on the river i felt committed.

      My question is should i have played raise/fold on the flop?

      Hi.

      Raising the flop is the worst play. You should call flop and decide on turn. While nothing has changed onthe turn, it does not mean that SB's betting range is still the same. In fact theres a high chance that his betting range would have tightened up significantly since he should not expect too much fold equity.

      The turn doesnt really bring too many draws as well so i think this is a fold. The river call is way too spewy even vs aggro opponents.
