      I couldnt lay that down, even with any Q holding a straight. Fish villain is capable of betting plenty of worse hands, and we invested enough / too much on the turn to let this one gofor a 2/3rds pot river.

      Turn bet was bigger than it had to be, 80c is fine here. You need to protect but it isnt a great board to escalate to a point where you can stack off from. Cutting 40c, assuming villain still bets 2/3rds pot, would have seen you only having to call $1.50 on the river instead of $2.10.

      I would bet $0,70 on the turn.

      I do not like c/f on the river, since flush did not hit. I do not like call, either. I would make small blockbet on the river (something litle bit less than 1/2-pot which would be cheaper if you had bet less on the turn) and fold to a raise.
