      Villain is calling station with tendency to float a lot. I don't like to overbet, but should I had in this spot to have more value?

      Hi ramadas.

      I think your assessment of him being a calling station may be inaccurate. This guy just plays such a strong range preflop that he always has hands which can continue (be it pocketpairs or AK top 2 overcards).

      Preflop: Woah such a nit. Do you have any reads on BU opening range? I usually 3bet JJ here but this guy is really tight so I think flatting JJ here could be good.

      Flop: I think donking and check/raise are both fine. If you expect him to bet the Flop most of the time then I prefer a c/r.

      Turn: I think you can bet bigger though.

      River: you potted the river so that's fine. If you overbet he may just fold his KX hand.
