      Villain is 13/10 cbet% 73 turn cbet% 38 over 1k hands. Is this a vbet v this guy? Is it a vbet v unknowns? I feel it is but I keep on getting owned in these spots v unknowns and it sucks.

      I'm pretty happy about checking behind here vs a regular.. can't think of alot of hands that are gonna call another bet.

      VS unknowns I would vbet here.

      Even v unknowns, I know I have most their range beat but I feel their calling range here is quite narrow and I'm not beating more than 50% of it. Are they going to c/c w AT here? I'm not sure.

      Like a lot of players will c/c AK, AQ, 2p or a set on the riv instead of b/f.

      I´d likely would bet smt like 5$
      He would sometimes c/c there AK, but he may also have there AQ/AJ, maybe ATs, so I think you can get some value with worse hands and good thing if he decided to give up and now sees small river bet he may easily go for river c/r that I´d call happily
