      Hello. Villain fishy player 29/12 3bet 8% WTSD 38% flop aggresion 2.0. I have no reads on this opponent. Because of his 3bet% I think he could not have AK so his range might be Kx, flush draws, combo draws, 2 pair type hands, sets. Agression 2.0 looks pretty big but because of the fact he loves to go to showdown I think most of his draws could be played in the passive way. Also his bet sizing was strange. Really confused me. Please evaluate and thanks :)

      You should definitely mention how many hands you have on villain.

      Aggression 2 is not high- so that's no reason to think that he is (semi)bluff raising a lot on the flop.

      Without reads and no history I'm folding mainly because of his bet sizing.

      I don't think you can expect him to be pure bluffing you on this board and also I don't see him raising KJ,KT on this board, with that high WTSD I think he is going to take a more passive line with weak-medium strenght hands that have showdown value.
      I assume that a raise that big on that board is either a monster draw against which we are flipping or either, most often, a monster hand like 55-66, 65

      Yeah I agree with you his WTSD indicates strong hand. But these type of players tend to slowplay too. So I think that it is confusing spot..

      It is idiotic to slowplay anything on that board. All strong value hands must be fast played(bet/raise) on such a drawy board

      Since you´re either flipping or being way behind his raising range on that flop I like b/f unless I know he can be bluffing there, raising for value worse hands than mine or raising enough times with draws. Until I do´t have any reads I´d give him credit and b/f to that big raise size that would mostly seems to be for protection
