      villain: vpip/pfr/af/FtoCB/wtsd/hands

      I just called preflop because at the time the hand was played he was raiseing a lot less and was just calling a lot.
      I raised the Fl for value and protection.
      I raised the turn mainly for the same reasons, even if some marginal draws or 2 pair completed. Would you bet in this situation vs this kind of player? If he shoves, would you ever stack off here?

      Hello BogdanDr,

      Overall your play is fine and you can't really do much on the river, where you should just Check/Fold it. I doubt that you would beat a lot of hands which bets there. His preflop line was also kind of weak and the same goes for CB on the flop.

      But what's your plan if he for example decides to 4bet you?

      Best Regards.
