      16/14/af=3.1/231 hand/ open raise late position 21%/fold to 3bet - 80%/wts21/w$s=71/

      I decided to check turn, since his agf is high, and he would bet TT,99,AJs for protection.

      I wouldn't put in his range AsKs or AsQs - since those would probably raise flop - since of Af.

      So far it looks like made hand - since his fold to cb is 83%
      I guess best line would be to check call turn - but what to do on river? I assume he is not having floating hands - since of his fold to cb, should I donk small, so he sees it as a block bet, than he would be able to call whit his JA hands?

      Hello sausage646,

      Well, I do like your line actually, most likely I'd also plan to Check the turn with intention to take it Check/Raise mode there. No other way to play it. It's either we 2nd barreling with the idea that he Checks behind very often for pot control with pairs and is passive with them or if we expect him to take stabs there with draws/Jx hands then I'd Check/Raise and most likely that would be my line here while he seems even to be aggressive enough for that.

      Best Regards.
