      43/0/2.1 after 35 hands

      Is cbet on flop ok? I think he can fold low pairs, better aces. If he has flushdraw he is calling and I get value.

      On turn and river I slowdown with weak hand.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop: Against such a calling station you could even consider not stealing at all, it will be hard to overplay him and he is capable of calling very light.

      As played
      Flop: I would likely just check behind and hope for to hit some Ace or something similar.
      Turn: Don't mind the Call here, raising will put yourself into bad position but sometimes it could be even possible to raise here to protect against flush for example the villain would be small stacked.
      River: I would make a smallish value bet here, he can still Call with some kind of Qx hand or even worse.

      Best regards.

      About preflop - I raise because:

      If I am behind his calling range, I think I am behind not very much.
      Table is 4-handed so I think I have to play looser because I am in the blinds more often than in 6-handed.
      If I hit ace I still win money from his lower pairs, draws.
      Sometimes even against this player my steal is succesfull.

      What do you think?

      I say it's actually totally fine but if you would like to avoid such a variance, I'd just fold there.
