      Villain is a fairly solid reg playing 25/21 over 2.3k hands. FlpCB is 68% and his TCB is 48% his River aggression stat is 1.7 and AF is 24%. Wasn't so sure where I stood in the hand OTT but had seen him barrell turn with air before so had to continue once he checked I felt I was ahead and I need to get value from AT, AJ type hands but his c/r surprised me. I can't see him ever turning up with worse here but do I have to call this? Are there any bluffs in his range here? Even T9 got there...

      2nd point, if you arent sure where you stand, and the villain checked to you on the river why didnt you just check behind? I still think that the bet is what I would do but I would be hoping that he raised as it looks like you are trying to steal the pot with a busted draw

      You may 3-bet pf, although call is also fine. I would prefer 3-bet, since I would 3-bet on the BU very wide range.

      Postflop I would have played the same way. He should c/c with weaker Ax hands and very few people would try to bluffraise you, so I think b/f should be ok.

      best regards,
