      MP3 was unknown. Judging from the stack and a limp - a recreational player / fish (what's the difference between the 2???).

      PREFLOP
      Freeplay

      FLOP
      Value.

      TURN
      Value.

      RIVER
      Could we call his bet as all the draws missed? Or am I more often against a better 8? We need only 25% equity.

      Hello,

      Preflop and flop are fine.

      On the turn I would usually not bet pot size, as the Q is an overcard and this might discourage him to call hands like weak 8x/5x. I would usually make it $0.35.

      As played, I think that the river is an easy check/fold here. The guy is unknown so we don't really have to bluffcatch here, also there aren't much draws in his range.

      Best,
      Plamen
