      Villain stats on 243 hands :
      11(vpip)/2(pfr)/-(f3bet)/7(steal)
      33(fcbet)/50(f 2nd barrel)/20(wtsd)/1.5(af)
      call open 1%

      His call open stat is pretty scary, basically he only calls AA, KK if the sample is accurate. His pfr is also scary, he only bets monsters and never folds to 3bet.

      I decided I won't bet flop because he will certainly call and I won't know what to do so I opted for a check for pot control and see what he does. He bets and being such a fish I'm still not convinced he's got a monster so I raise him small to see his reaction.

      Later I've seen him calling open again and he played tight, checking behind river because the board had 4 connected cards and he showed AA. His call open stat remained 2% until I left the table. What do you think?

      Hey,

      He bets and being such a fish I'm still not convinced he's got a monster so I raise him small to see his reaction.
      This is not a reason to raise/bet ;)

      This guy is supertight so I just check/call and evaluate the Turn

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      As I said, me = fish :f_cry: . He'd never bluff and there was no need for protection :(
