      so villain was very agressive and kinda loose playing like 16 tables.
      so well hmm since he is very agressive and he pretty much insta bet me i was sure he had a KT,KJ,KQ,AQ(rarely, he most likely would 3bet with AQ).
      so was i wrong re raising the turn? should i let him bet again on the river?
      letting him believe ive got a busted straight/semi bluff flush draw?

      If he's very aggressive then calling and letting him bluff the river is a good move sometimes. But by calling turn, the river is hard to get any spew from bluffs since the pot is too big for him to bluff 3bet your river raise. It depends on whether we think he has some sort of value in his range, if he has then we can flat turn and raise the river, hoping he will call with random top pairs. If his range is mainly bluffs but he is spewy then we can raise turn and hope he shoves
