      I'd fold too, NH IMO.

      I really didn't know how to play there. My problem is, that he also could float here, but his stats are pretty tight with a low aggression factor although I just got about 150 hands of this player. He could have also had a flush- and/or straightdraw and bluffed me on the turn, but I was pretty unsure. Empirically I would say that they only minraise the turn on the low limits if they got made hands. So please tell me how you would've played it.

      I would've played exactly like you did. A player that has an AF this low will hardly ever bluff, and you showed strength through the hand, I believe you're way ahead in situations like this one.

      Since his wtsd is 33 and af 0,4 I would played it the same way-bet, bet, bet.
      If player would be aggressive or/and his wtsd is low, then you can sometimes try c/c turn, check/re-evaluate on the river.
      It is good for pot control and if you´re afraid then you might get bluffed out on the pot then give the villain chance to bluff.
      Against maniacs you could also sometimes try c/rai on the turn. Then you don´t have to worry about calling both turn and river bets, when the board gets ugly and you´re ahead most of their range+ they don´t try to make bluffs so often any more.
