      I played this one too passive because i did not want to make a big pot with this hand,and on the river I was sure that villain doesnt have a flush and i thought he had a top pair with a good kicker. As it turns out I was almost right and made a good call. Did I play my hand correctly in this spot?

      calldown is one option
      I would c/r turn to 9$ and shove river for value
      You loose too much value against top pair+ hands with top two pair and since villain has 80bb and likely is bad player you can win him a lot of money
