      nicely played... i would also play it passively on the flop and turn

      i might put him all in on the river if he is a real crazy fish... because the backdoor flush would be just tough luck then

      Hello,

      Preflop: I don't like your Call at all, just fold the hand, you are just giving good odds for others too Call, against your hand is very often dominated. Otherwise if you really want to play vs the fish and you think you can easily overplay him then raise it but it's kinda marginal with such hand, you have to hit big and also it's kinda complicated to play the hand profitable.

      As played
      Nice hand, well played.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
