      3bet 32 (19)
      60 hands

      I didn't want to see a call so I didn't 4bet him preflop, because I will be in difficult situation post flop. But I guess I had to make 4bet because he could call with weaker hands. And if he 5bets I guess I have to fold. So another reason would be not to 4bet.

      How do you think this should be played?

      Now he cbets, but this could easily be a bluff, so I call.

      On turn he checks, and I turn my hand into a bluff, but still don't know if I should against this fish. I did it because if I check, then he bluffing river often and I will have to fold.

      River - this probably is not a bluff anymore so fold.

      I think you should 4-bet pré-flop.

      If you are afraid of him calling with worse (?) and not hit anything on flop, give a big 4-bet and leave him comited already on the flop.

      - OOps! Even with the name thread I didn`t saw that you were deep

      Call standard than. Flop stdd. river stdd. Turn I don`t know what I would do :\

      Call pf is fine, although against 40/19 I´m fine also to 4-bet/6-bet shove if he 5-bets, since he can do that with worse hands both for bluffs and for value+ he might always call being oop with worse hands
      Since 6s is not the best hand and you have showdown value I´d try to go on showdown. It is hard him to c/c you with worse hands and if he has there some kind of flushdraw he might always decide to bluff on blank river (although most of the times I think he would barrel with spades)
