      villain is 36/26/3.9/100%FT3b/44%st/150 hands
      seems really spewy and i have been 3betting him a lot, so far has folded 8/8 times.
      standard flop cbet, but couldnt decide between bet/folding, bet/calling or c/shoving turn just because this guy was so loose and bad and i had seen him make bad moves with worse Ax in a similar spot against me. in the end his range seemed a lot like AQ AJ type hands but i think i made a weak fold.

      This is the hand i played against him just before which led me to thinking i made a weak fold:

      Hello dannywratten,

      Why do you even go for Check/Fold on the turn? You have even a nutFD on the turn there now and of course he may easily have worse hands. Therefore I'd still CB myself or even if you Check then still Call it.

      Best Regards.

      With his stack size on the turn, would you considering c/r turn and getting it in instead of c/c?

      Why should we Check/Raise if we check? We wont achieve much with it, I'd just Call and reevaluate the river, he wont bet anyways with weaker Ax hands there.

      Ok thanks i undersand, i just thought if we check to induce, he is going to be committing himself by betting, hopefully with worse hands and we can just shove it in on the turn.

      Also if we lead on the turn, its never a bet/fold right? Always calling it off against this guy?

      Normally i wouldnt have a tough decision in this spot, it was just a really strange dynamic with this guy that confused me, also im probably not very good at explaining the situation & gameflow to you which makes it difficult :D

      If he is this way overplayed all kind of aces then I'd be happy to Bet/Go-Broke there. If he raised AT even on that board earlier then most likely he is capable of raising any crap as he feels committed. Also of course our equity is good enough there.
