      Hello! Villain here seems like a regular. Here´s some statistics from 130 hands we've played together: 21/19/11 (Vpip/pfr/afr) Cbetflop 73, wtsd 24, steal button 50. Hero has been playing tight as well nothing too crazy and very few showdowns.

      In this hand turn and especially river plays are kind a perplexing me. Thinking c/c is the best line on the turn because the opponent is capable of barreling and don't really want to take that possibility away. Also I thought if I checkraised it would be too easy for him to play the hand correctly. Since I took such a weak line and given that villain had been very aggressive in all streets I just weren´t sure what is the right move in that spot when the board gets as ugly as it can get. Ended up calling since the bet wasn´t that big.

      Hello spadek,

      Kind of dumb spot on the river but vs his BTN stealing range I guess it could be even done if you really think he is also barreling a lot on turn and river and is capable of bluffing like that. I don't really have that kind of information on that and mainly depends on the dynamics on river.

      Best Regards.
