Default How was this played?

Hey guys,
This is my first time actually posting here. I've been reading the posts on this site for a few days now and had a question about this hand and wondering how I played it. I apologize in advance if this post comes out a little wierd, im new to this converter. I cant seem to get the turn and river bets to show up using the converter. I just copied my hand history directly into the converter and for some reason it just spews out everything up to the turn. Can anyone give me a little advice on how to correct this? Well back onto the hand. The villain here is a pretty loose aggressive player. On the turn I bet 35 and he went all in. Is this an obvious call as Im pretty committed? And how is my turn bet?
Any feedback would be great. thanks.
Sam

Your turn bet is fine.
About his raise &amp; your call: He should assume that you have an A with a good kicker.If he calls,the pot will be about $125 &amp; he will have about $85 left.It seems that if he had an 8 in his hand,he would not want to lose you &amp; would want to raise less.I would call.

well played up til flop. On the turn bet is okay but now you are facing a tough decision.. I'd fold here.

turn, you have to know your opponent..

against bad/passive players, it's correct to bet, but against good players, they will either fold or put to to a decision by pushing.

I like to check often against aggresive players because draws only have 20% equity on blank turn, and aggresive players often bluff missed river and you can simply call..and bet if they check to you on blank. I think checking makes it really hard for you to misplay your hand, while doing the opposite for villain.

What line do I take if I check the turn and he makes a pot sized bet? Just call and check/call the river too?

so you are in position.. on river blank you simply call if he fires out a PSB because you induced him to bluff by checking turn. if a flush card comes, I think I'd fold to the bet. if checked to on a blank river, you can probably valuebet as worse Ax will call you

I completely disagree with All-in Sushi . . . you're in position, why give him a free card if he IS on a draw?
