      villian was playing 23/19 after only 21 hands.

      I just played this hand a bad way I feel. What do you think of the c/r (aside from it being way too small)? the turn call reeks of spew in my opinion but i'd like a second. Could he bluff wide there (pair + gutshot or overs or something) given the weakness of my line?

      c/r you´re just building big pot and if he continues you never can be sure where you´re at. So you can c/r flop, bet turn and shove river thinking he may fold better hands, since you don´t get called by worse hands
      And sometimes he may also 3-bet flop which would mean you have to fold your hand or shove with usually very little equity.
      So my plan would be leading out on the flop, betting turn and then c/c river
      If I face raise at any point I then have to consider if I want to b/f or b/c. Mostly b/f since players don´t make enough moves there or if I think player likes to bluff then c/c down is also one safe way to play your top pair hand
