      Villain 32/20 - check raise flop 34%

      How should I have played this hand on the flop? Call? Push? (I didn't consider folding here because of his large bluff range). Maybe I should have put him all in on the flop cause there are many cards I don't want to see on turn and river...

      And what about a check behind instead of the cbet?

      If you think MP3/Mp2 are quite fishy, you don't get that many folds with 75s in which you want because the hand is just total trash with a SPR of 3-4

      So on this flop I would just bet/f because it is impossible to have a long-term c/R % of 34 so you have to learn how to use stats properly

      Best regards,

      Ok. I'll pay closer attention in these situations. Today I avoided raising weaker hands against fishes.

      Just a question: what's SPR? :D

      Yes it means stack to pot ratio and defining the needed speed of betting :)

      SPR 1 means you can just shove the Flop potsized for example but it has no wiggle room
