      20/14/1 af/35 steal/ only 52 hands

      He was stealing for the last 3 orbits so I decided to make a move. I know I didn't pick the right moment but my thinking process went like this: If he calls me he probably has some overcards and he will probably fold if he misses the flop completely.

      Flop looked really nice for me, since it's very dry and he won't call my big bet with overcards here.

      Turn: I decide to go for pot control OOP. This card changes nothing but I don't want to see bet/raise from him, so I go for c/c line. Is calling ok here?

      River: I was really thinking if he bet, is there any possibility I'm good here since he checked the turn so he also may have some 66, 77, 88. More often than not we're beat here.

      I know I didn't pick the best hand to make a move on him. Is my c/c on turn ok? Since we can expect another bet on the river, it's probably not so good?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Seems to be kinda legit I guess actually. Most likely I would have played the way you planned to play it if I consider the opponent being able to float in 3bet pots and bet with hands like AK/any overcards vs us on turn. Although he is pretty passive, against some I might even just prefer Check/Folding since I doubt he will have that many worse hands in his floats.

      Best Regards.
