      Hero VPIP: 23, PFR: 16, 3B: 8, AF: 5.4, Hands: 1583
      Villain VPIP: 58, PFR: 17, 3B: 7, AF: 1.8, Hands: 53

      Pre I am hoping to isolate one of these (all of them very loose and somewhat passive - though perk up with a strong hand)

      Flop value/protection lots of draws. I think villain can call with worse unimproved pockets, ace highs and tons of flush and straight draws.

      Same on the turn. I feel my hand has improved somewhat as its less likely he has the Jack. I bet about half pot to get value from hands mentioned on flop but not overplay hand in case he has 99 a ten or better.

      River many draws come in but looking for curiosity call from strong ace highs , unimproved pockets ie thin value. I feel perhaps check give up was ok too but obviously I can't beat a hand he raises with.

      Hello Alieaz,

      Flop: Not the greatest board CB there, there are too many hands which are willing to Call us. Therefore rather just Check/Fold the flop and let him have the pot.

      As played
      Turn: I do agree thought with the 2nd barrel here as we made it for value on the flop. We bet it for protection and free showdown.
      River: As too many draws complete for us it's much safer to just give up the hand and Check/Fold, you practically turned your hand into bluff.

      Best Regards.
