      Is there a better way to play this? Villain is 33/9 with WTSD 41% AF 0.8. I know that him catching the K was a lucky shot on his part but should I continue to be as aggressive against this type of opponent ?

      Hello Rastlin1,

      Nah, overall seems to be fine. If he is a huge station you can even bet bigger on the flop & turn. But as played the river I might even make a smaller block-bet ~$3. He may still have something like J:hX type of hand. Plus of course will have hard time to Call with a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
