      Villain stats in 1581 hands :
      23(vpip)/14(pfr)/25(f 3bet)/28(steal)
      49(f cbet)/27(f 2nd barrel)/30(wtsd)/1.7(af)
      EP : pfr 14%, f 3bet 30%

      I noticed this villain folds a lot when he opens x2 from UTG. This time he didn't and I took the line above. I don't think he hit an ace, he would surely raise my cbet and since the flushdraw didn't complete I afforded to cbet/check/shove river which is a line usually used when you have nuts. I wasn't sure if I have the best hand, he might have Kx or pocket pairs with a diamond, to afford checking behind.

      What do you mean with ''noticed''? Did you 3bet him before? etc.

      cbet/check/shove river which is a line usually used when you have nuts.
      First time I heard this and sounds illogical as well if he has a since the Turn is the only street you can still get value from

      So if you want to go all the way I cbet flop & shove Turn but I generally don't like your preflop 3bet

      Yeah, I 3bet him and he folded several times + other guys 3bet him and he folded. So I wanted to abuse his weak open because he has a wide range(15%) and I'm not sure if he opens x2 all hands or only the weak ones.

      I think he projects himself on me and if he had a flush, he would cbet, check, shove. Generally that's what players do at this limit with the nuts. Of course, it's hard to trust someone for flopping a flush but I don't think he can call a weak ace, a weak pair, a busted fd or a K. It's probably better to cbet/shove but that K discouraged me to do it. On river he checks again and I thought that's just too weak so I either shove and force him to make a decision, or check behind but I'm not sure if I win.
