      Villan(CO) was 40/28/4.0 over ~70 hands.

      :diamond:P reflop:
      He was raising quite often so i think that my call preflop is somewhat ok.
      :diamond:O n the flop:
      I hit TPTK, and i'm not ok with a check right there so i bet quite small, because there aren't so many draws. When CO raises, his range is quite tighter but besides QQ+, i think he could reraise there with AJ+,QJ,KJ and maybe with air for a pure bluff, so i decide he might not be on a hand and reraise all-in.

      Hello mayapnd,

      Preflop: I don't really like the Call here, being OOP. More often I'd sometimes even consider for 3betting him, since he seems to be opening a lot of hands. And we often are ahead of his raising range. Therefore Fold or raise is better than Calling.

      As played
      Flop: Or often I'd just Bet/Fold here, he is representing a very strong hand and I rarely see him bluffing here into multiway pot. Either I don't see him raising with just KJ or QJ, more often it's a set or some OP.

      Best regards.
