      Hi, BGawli.

      The opponent seems decent so I think ch/f is the best line.

      All draws hit so there are not really many bluffs in his range, and the worse hands he can bet for value on the river is either JJ or T9. But the thing is he can't expect anything worse than that actually call, so I'd assume a good player there is checking behind those often (unless I know he's capable of razor thing bets vs. me).

      However, I do get a bug by his fold to cbet stats, both on flop and turn. Of course with a decent sample like that we could look at all sorts of things like raise cbet and river bet vs missed cbet. I think from time to time we have to find a hero call on the river vs. that guy.

      And like I said on previous posts, I'm not really fond of blockbets that small and especially vs. regulars since it's so exploitable (you're folding even to minraise). I think they are even more useful as bluff inducers than anything else.
