      Villain had 3bet 20% from SB vs steal (sample: 10 hands) and 15 % in BB vs steal (13 hands sample). I now see the sample is really small...
      So with this high 3bet% I decided to play back and attack a lot of flops/turns, his cbet% is 75%. I check back flop because I don't think he will x/f anything there. Right?
      I dont understand turn x/mr. I 'm really lost there, maybe T9, hearts? What should my plan be on the river?

      Well maybe i am wrong but i dont like the way you play. J5s call 3 bet.
      Then you float with air.

      Well i am lost here....

      but this i guess my poor understanding of poker.

      Of course this is far from standard and very bad play vs pretty much everyone. I thought he 3bets a lot (in hindsight, sample size is waaaaay to small) & I thought he would cbet like 90%. Again, no sample size so I don't like my call either. Nevertheless, turn decision is still interesting imo.

      I think you can´t really call J5s. You are forced to make moves postflop and if you hit your one pair hand then have to really make some thin calldowns that cost you a lot of money. If you want to play back, then 4-bet to 5$ and take back initiative. I doubt he would call very often being oop.

      I think postflop is fine. Not sure what hand he would c/r turn, but I´m not folding tp that point and likely would call him down.

      Best regards,
