      Villain 53/13 for 53 hands

      Villain makes a big raise on the flop. In my opinion he is less likely to do this with a drawing hand and more likely to do this with a made hand like a set or else a bluff. For this reason I call.

      Villain makes large bet on turn. I gain outs with my open ended straight draw and even though not all my outs are clean I call.

      I make a hand but villain bets the river pretty big also. Am I only bating a bluff here? I don't know if he plays a set so aggressively in this spot. On the other hand I don't know if he plays 99 or T9 so aggressively either.

      Hello 0744379,

      First of all Bet the flop a bit bigger and avoid those guys of bluffs or semi-bluffs whilst you show weakness with your size. Though otherwise not much to comment once we Call the turn, either we fold it or we planning to play for the stacks there once we hit.

      Best Regards.
