      SB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $2.08, SB folds

      Villain seemed very aggressive over the few hands I had him on 50%3bet but only over 7 hands but he had some tendencies that did imply he was to aggressive 83/67 vpip/pfr
      His 3bet also indicated to me atleast he was doing it oftent, as such a small 3bet will be called many times, not sure if my hand was strong enough here to call but he was OOP.
      My plan was to take it down on turn.

      I flopped a flush, I doubt villain has a stronger hand now, with his small bet I just called to get him bluffing again.

      he bets small again, and I reraise, again a spot I should have given him more room to make a mistake, however he told me he had QQ, after calling me an idiot :P
      I think my sizeing was a bit over the top, it might look like a bluff however but don't know how he would react, he might be agro, but not stupid like me ;)

      Flop: I think raising Flop is an option with your small flush, calling is fine too. I may just put in a min-raise, I prefer this option because he had only made a <50% pot size bet on the Flop.

      Turn: I think you have to raise now cos he did make very small PF/F/T bets so if you call here there will be 1.5X the pot left in stacks on the River so there is a need to build the pot. A min-raise should suffice.
