      WTSD : 78
      Hands : 132

      aggression on river: 62% , all other streets around 30%!

      I cant possibly have folded on the river? such a horrible opponent. I was thinking about what hands he could call me with... but with 87% vpip it means anything..

      I thought he must have 2 pair .. or a lower set ?

      what could i have done better or is this just one of these hands that could not be avoided .. i had to lose this one?

      (thanks for all your comments in advanced i just started BSS)

      Don't sweat it, if you can't go broke with a set against a 87/32/2.4 with 78 WTSD you're going to fold all your hands :p I admit his line looks strong, but he'd likely play all lower sets and probably some two pairs combos like that too, so i don't think you can find a fold. His aggression on the river is probably just a product of him being a slowplayer.

      That being said against such a player, don't be afraid to just bet big on all streets, 78 WTSD is just insane even over a smallish sample, he won't fold anything just because you made it pot instead of 2/3 pot. I'd bet like $0.55 on the flop, $1.3 on the turn and around $3 on the river.

      Hope it helps.
