      i'm taking a shot, so i don't have any reads on this villain
      he's playing 21/21 19% 3bet over 107 hands

      i think flop is standard on this dry board versus unknown. I am not so sure about my turn sizing, i think i should've made it like 17-19$, but i doubt i'd go that big if i had a draw and decided to c/r turn, so i guess it's ok.

      what line is best on the river versus this opponent?

      Hello overlordcro,

      Rather Check/Raise the flop instead than the turn, where it's going to be most of the time nutted hands which Check/Raises there.

      Though as we play this way then I'd still Check/Raise the turn a bit bigger and I'd plan to Bet/Fold the river. Can't really see any other purposes on other plays.

      Best Regards.
