      Hero:
      $48,25
      BU:
      $59,15

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.


      Villain plays really good and doesn't make too crazy calldowns

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:heart: , Q:club:
      3 folds, BU raises to $1,50, SB folds, Hero calls $1,00.

      Flop: ($3,25) T:club: , 6:diamond: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2, Hero raises to $6,00, BU calls $4,00.

      He does respond to donkbets well so i went for a check raise since i think the board is ok for that. I could play a flushdraw like this but i could also play Tx or stronger hands for protection like this. He can't call with much, and even raise with even less hands.

      Turn: ($15,25) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $8,5, BU calls $8,50.

      He could have hit his flush, but since he could still have something like JdJx i went for protection.
      Should have bet ~$10

      River: ($32,25) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $27,5, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $32,25

      Hello chocular77,

      Flop: If you assume having here enough of fold equity then sure why not, his stealing range + CBetting range is pretty wide so should work. Usually myself I'd be looking for hand which also had a backdoor FD in it rather than raise with total air while the only hope is to catch a SD/overcards and the SD even has discounted outs cause of the FD.
      Turn: Betting is pretty standard here, although I would go for bigger one ~$10-11.
      River: Guess not much you can do here, even if he turns some hand into bluff then I would assume this being more towards of a card while I don't see him calling us that loose on 2 streets. And as you said yourself he isn't doing stupid call-downs.

      Best Regards.
