      I thought to reraise preflop and bet/fold flop. I don't like my play the rest - prob best to fold flop, or not so bad to just call flop fold turn?

      So why didn't you? This is my line.

      As played: If you got any reads that he is capable on bluffing that spot so go ahead and call but I would probably fold the river if he is loose passive.

      I didn't do it because I was wary of losing a big pot to the fish, and not confident in my play against him.
      I realize now that I should have wanted to make a big pot with the fish especially with a strong hand. I also can't be calling stuff down and not raising - it has bad long term consequences. I adjusted soon after this hand and started winning bigger pots more often.
