      Villain is 38/29/2.0 Att to Steal 44, WTS 45 over 34 hands, playing very aggresively but not fishy and on the lucky run. He could have easily called with TT and also any suited and connected T's, also QQ, JJ, 99, and 88... so I just chickened out.

      Please evaluate:

      Flop: I would deffo bet biger on flop for value ~$1.60-1.75 (as a side effect - comes protection) and you are likely to be outdrawn, so you deffinetly must bet, and bet bigger than you did.

      I like the range that you put villain on!

      Turn: as played, I would bet/fold to re-raise, cause he might have set, str8, however TPTK aswell. if he flats on turn, re-evaluate the river and make a decision.

      Extremely wanna hear what judges will say tho. :f_cool:

      Yeah, I know... Only after I posted the hand, I realised that my bet on flop was too small. I don't know why I did this, because I normally bet 2/3 pot...

      I would 3bet more preflop, like ~$1.10, because if he calls, you will play out of position.

      On flop, even 2/3 of pot is too small, because this flop hits his calling range perfectly. It's hard for him not to have something on this flop, so I would say close to pot, as miljonszalie suggested, would be mandatory.

      Hello SilverSag,

      Preflop: Since we are OOP, I'd even raise it bigger, ~$1 and maybe even bigger since he is a station.

      As played
      Flop: I'd even CBet bigger here, ~$1,40.
      Turn: Also rather Bet/Fold it here, ~$2,50 or something similar. He might as well have here Qx which he is likely just Calling us and giving a free showdown. Check/Fold is sometimes too weak against those kind of players.

      Best regards.
