      Final Pot: $28.00

      Preflop was miscalcualted, one players bet was partially hidden by stats. Should have bet 0.80 here I think.

      Flop was an instant call, I second barrelled the turn thinking it is most likely a flush draw and smaller pocket pairs may fold, took a long time to call here.

      I checked the river, and the bet comes after about 8 seconds. After watching this player I don't think he is betting anything but a busted flush or a 2 (unlikely) here, and checking down anything else with showdown value. I eventually made the call with AJ high.

      Would like to hear some thoughts on this situation.

      If you put him on flushdraw, isn´t c/rai on the turn would be better him to fold his hand :)
      I think he´d also shove turn with Kx, so you can also fodl there, but since draw missed and you have A high, then call is ok.
      You could also shove hoping that he folds Tx (7x) if he had that flushdraw.
      But in general I´d just give up if he called my flop bet.
      He is passive enough that he likely holds there Kx, than draw.
