      Recently I've started defending the blinds a bit more... not too much, but my BB Fold To Steal is now 80, compared with about 95 earlier this year.

      This villain is solid enough - 12/8... however, he normally open-raises 4XBB, so I was suspicious of a steal attempt.

      Looks like he gave up after flop anyway, but is a turn bet here a good idea? I'm not in the habit of semi-bluffing gutshots... as it turned out, the river card was nice, but he wasn't interested...

      Hello philhellmutt,

      Preflop: If he is that nitty then sometimes you might even just raise it up here, which wouldn't wrong either if he is folding to 3bets a lot. Or either Calling with such a hand is as well fine, has a pretty good playability postflop.
      Postflop: Somehow the floating is fine, although I'd definitely bet the turn myself and often times even take it down right there.

      Best regards.
