I know I stacked my opponent here, still I've had a lot of thoughts about how I could have played this differently. I would love to know what other people think.

    Villain is bad at poker.

    You did great. While it is good to ask if you could do better, in this spot you will gain more by asking "why did Villain play as they did?". What fallacies, fears, or emotions drove them to these actions.

    Given this answer, what other errors do you expect them to be prone to? Make a fictional hand showing the behavior, see what people think.
