      I think I might have missed value here by barrelling the Turn. I think I gave villain the opportunity to give up his floats ( albeit unlikely in a 3b pot) or to make a disciplined laydown with something like 99-QQ.

      I think villain is aggressive enough for check for bluff induce to work on the turn and if villain x/beh he might be more inclined to call because of the following:
      1) I have indicated weakness and he is aggressive enough to float here sometimes
      2) He may improve to a weaker hand
      3) If he can just call on the R for showdown he is more likely to pay off, than to call T and be potentially playing for his entire stack.

      Obviously if villain bets the T then it would be between x/rai or x/c T and DB R.

      against such an aggressive villain i would consider betting ~1/3 pot on the flop to possibly induce. our hand is pretty much invulnerable in this spot, so by betting small we can induce villain to spazz out, and we aren't worried about protecting our hand.

      as played i would either xc turn, or bet 1/3-2/5 pot. i would xc as we can get bluffs out of villain, and 77+ most likely will bet on turn and again on river.

      Hello muel294,

      Only thing what I'd change is that I'd make smaller bets, just those sizes which would easily allow me to ship the river. So turn Bet is definitely too much whilst it gives him difficult time to Call with high cards.

      Though I doubt that he is going to bluff that much once we Check into him.

      Best Regards.
