      Villain is playing VPIP:34/ PFR:6 / AF:1.6 over 90 hands.

      When he min raises me i put him on total air, maybe a mid pair or a v.weak J, i know he's a station so I choose to just call his raise as I dont want to scare away any hands he might think are good here.

      I feel like I lose value in most cases if I 3-bet the flop here?

      Hello Tirys1703,

      Flop: Yeah Calling is a better option here since he wont continue with a lot weaker hands here and often he will just fold, try to getting his money with betting all the next streets, so he could still Call you with PPs like 33+.
      Turn: I'd bet a bit bigger, ~$0.7.
      River: Betsize is totally fine and likely you can bet for value and hope a smaller PP to Call.

      Best regards.
