      Villain

      hands 63, vpip 37, pfr 2, wtsd 33, AF 0,71

      Call or fold? I didn't have as many hands from this opponent while playing, but seeing his stats after the session made me think folding is the best option. Villain doesn't look like a guy with too many bluffs in his arsenal, even though his bet is pretty polarized. I thought it would be seven or nothing and don't think there are too many ways for him to have seven here (77, 7d6d, 8d7d, Ad7d, which are only 9 combinations). Surely he could also have QdJd, but also a lot of busted flush draws as he was playing a lot of hands pre-flop.

      I'm not sure did I play any post-flop street right. Should I have bet bigger on the flop and turn? And should I make a blocker bet on the river?

      I think a small block bet is the best option, it seems that these days even the fish will call 2 streets with very little the instabet pot if you check the river.

      bet sizes are fine, at these stakes and especialy everest the difference between 2/3 and pot arent going to change the decision of villain to call or fold in an unraised pot

      As it is, without many hands or reads on this villian id call, this way you get a read on him early, relatively cheaply which will save you/make you money later on, expescially in bigger pots.

      b/f river to 2$ is reasonable, he should call you down with worse hands
      If player is really spazzy then c/c is ok move
