      On about 80 hands, villain plays 44/27/2 (VPIP/PFR/AF). He has a high aggression frequency and I had the impression he bluffed a lot of hands, although I did not really have a showdown with him. He was quite active and his limp preflop looks fishy.
      Fold to Cbet flop: 0 (/3 hands), aggression freq 56%. WTSD only 17, but this is likely due to his aggression.
      I raise for value pre-flop. To get more value out of him, I decide to let him bluf and check raise him all-in as this flop is unlikely to have hit him. A good move, or should I just Cbet it or check-fold?

      I doubt his c/c preflop range and often he would have PP.
      FTCB is too low so he would call loose so I don't want to bluff raise against him.

      I can't decide CB or c/f

      Thanks for the reply. The difference between his VPIP and PFR suggests that his range is much wider than just PPs, don't you think? But you're right that his limp-call looks somewhat PP-ish of course, but don't see why he would not do this with e.g. suited connectors or A-x hands. What are your thoughts on this?

      If you think he has FD and worse Ax, I'll lead him.
      Bet/fold, Bet/fold, check/fold.
      I doubt he would raise with worse Ax

      Hi,

      If he bluffs worse hands that you dominate then check/shoving is the best play as he will fold those hands when you bet the Flop and/or the Turn

      You are even flipping versus Flushdraws+live cards for example which is great because then you do not need him to fold that often since u risk $4.35 to win $2.5

      Best regards,
      Gerv
