      Villain stats:
      VP: 14 PFR: 8 Aggression Factor: 5 Fold to Cbet: 70% Hands: 399

      I decide to play my draw aggresively OOP because he gives up on the flop most of the times and he's very aggressive and probably won't give me ods to call if he has medium pairs and if he hit the king.
      My questions are:
      - Should my bet size be different on the turn if I don't hit;
      - how much should I be betting if I hit the flush on the river to make this profitable? If I don't hit it on the turn I've got 20% equity against his Top pair and I'm not sure this type of opponent will pay me off on a pot bet or 3/4 bet after my 1/2 bet on the turn.
      - should I just check/call or check/fold depending on his bet sizing.

      Hello GGerila,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      - Should my bet size be different on the turn if I don't hit;

      Yes, I might even bet it bigger on flop ~$0,35 and turn like $0,70.

      - how much should I be betting if I hit the flush on the river to make this profitable? If I don't hit it on the turn I've got 20% equity against his Top pair and I'm not sure this type of opponent will pay me off on a pot bet or 3/4 bet after my 1/2 bet on the turn.

      I guess you can make it even near pot and 3/4 should be fine on those limits.

      Best regards.
