      Villain is straightforward reg, 16/13/4.9, raise EP=10. Decent cbet and barrell, 70% on flop, 58% on turn.

      His most likely hand is AK, but I don't think I can let it go that easily. If I raise flop the only hand I am getting called by is maybe KK, I am dead against AK, and I think he is shoving sets with his good equity. The problem with raising is that I have to fold to a shove and he may be doing that with a set.

      Should I just fold the turn? I am still beating AA and KK, maybe AQ. Really don't think he would be bluffing on such a board.

      As played, what do I do if river is a blank and he fires? What about when he checks a river blank?

      Hello circoflax,

      Seems like a nice hand here, most likely I would have played the same way vs his overall range. If he has a lot of AK hands in his range then the equity which continues on the flop vs him will be pretty bad. Nice hand!

      As played, what do I do if river is a blank and he fires?

      What's his W$SD? If the same size I guess I would even make the crying Call while he could as well block-bet vs us.

      What about when he checks a river blank?

      Again what's his W$SD? :) Do you ever seem him Check/Calling with an overpair vs you? I would consider him being capable of doing that. Therefore we could Bet for value if we see him hero-calling.

      Best Regards.
