      Villain; 20/16 on 91 hands 3.8AF.

      I should probably have had a better plan for this hand.
      1)I dislike my call preflop, I was planning on floating him for some reason but can't remember why.
      2)Wasn't sure at the time whether checking back turn or bluff induce was a good idea or to just bet/fold for free SD.
      3)After checking river I get worried his riverbet looks like a valuebet he can now have various two-pairs etc, just call anyway or give up?

      against 20/16 it is standard call pf
      I would likely b/f turn myself, since if he has smt like Tx/99 with flushdraw he would call, so you´re protecting your hand and can take free showdown
      river is close, I think both call or fold are fine, since it is small pot I usually tend to keep them honest.
