      Villain is slightly maniac, playing back a lot at 'steals' but playing monsters passively. I'd have left the table but there were two big fish to my right and I thought I need to learn how to adjust to these guys at NL50 rather than run away.

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $94.40
      BU(Hero):
      $62.50
      SB:
      $50.00
      BB:
      $56.50
      MP2:
      $50.00
      MP3:
      $49.90


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5, 5.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB raises to $6.00, BB folds, Hero calls $4.50.

      Flop: ($12.5) 3, J, 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $8.50, Hero raises to $20.00, SB raises to $44.00, Hero calls $24.00.

      Turn: ($100.5) 5 (0 players)
      Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($100.5) J (0 players)
      Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $76.5.

      Villain says nh well played, but was it?

      Is 4bet/cbet/push flop a better line?
      Do I have FE on the flop?
      Do I have to call his all in (I think so)

      I think you can c-bet and then try to check it down
      You have fold equity if he has Ax hand without any heart but you´re anyway against that range
      Since he´d shove with flushdraw you have to call hi shove, but often you´re way behind so I´d prefer call flop and fold turn ui
