      Opponent is very aggressive and tight, AF=4.0, WTSD=12. The flop is relatively dry, so I decide to let him do the betting on flop, however after he bets I don't know if I should raise or call. If I would call there's a chance that he bluffs again on the turn, then again if he checks behind on the turn he gets two free cards, which decreases my chances of winning considerably even on a dry board. So what should I do on the flop?

      Hello fuzzyfish,

      Preflop: I'd raise it bigger, ~$1.70, your raise is way too smallish.

      As played
      Flop: I don't mind the line as you picked, therefore that next time he might even skip being aggressive against us, I might just raise smaller, ~$4 to give him room even sometimes to shove.

      Best regards.
