      Villain is 19/11/6. 132 hands

      Is it okay to keep firing this way against a TAG? Or should I have checked ott?

      Hello akaRilu,

      Actually not really after the raise.

      Flop: Basically I would even prefer just Check/Calling the flop if not even Check/Folding. But while he may easily even raise here with draws while he seems to be somewhat aggressive then i don't mind continue.
      Turn: Although here I would after the Raise on flop rather Check/Call and if I even want to continue with bets then I'd rather keep it like $1,40 and not give him great odds if he is even drawing.

      As played if turn was bet
      River: Guess it's pretty thin value after he did raise us on flop and even the turn completed. Therefore at some spots I might even Check/Fold it here if I don't expect him to bet anyways with worse. Or other option would be like betting $1,20 and folding to the raise.

      Best regards.
