You payed to hit it, you obviously know it is a losing play in the long run. So i would not feel too bad maybe a bit fishy but it happens all the time. He leads the flop then checks the turn then leads the river, i wonder if he reraises all in on turn i imagine you would fold so he could have played it better on the turn.

Hi ad,

Preflop open is fine, but definitely fold to a 3b from an unknown.

I like the flop call, float in position, there's lots of scary turn cards for his range which is largely AK/AQ and pocket pairs. (Some of those scary cards improve us and some don't, but they are mostly much better for our range than his).

Betting the turn when checked to is fine, executing the float as he will fold all non-pair hands generally, and they are all beating us, so it's a nice semi-bluff.

Shove over his river lead for sure with the 2nd nuts.
