      Hello cutegoldfish,

      Preflop: I'd just 3bet against his range, he is very often stealing here therefore without any reason not to do that, I don't really like the Call but of course it's doable.

      As played
      Postflop: Don't really like to raise such dangerous board actually, he is going to continue a lot of hands here, rather just donk it and it has almost the same fold equity as your Check/Raise. Unless you have some other proofs like stats or reads.

      Best regards.
