      Villain: 26/20 AF 4
      Flop and turn I think the must bets. When he raised the turn I put him on queen, so I think that its worth to call a raise with so many outs, and I will probably get some money on the river. Maybe this small bet was bad, but I try to get reraised and call since he's rather aggressive. ?

      I think it is not wrong to raise before flop and make it either 2/3 or pot bet on te flop, i wouldnt mind stacking on the flop either if he reraises you. Turn is actually not a bad card here, even if he has trips here, you are still good, river makes your straight, i would probably call here since he rarely has a full house here and he will often be doing this with any queen or as a bluff.

      Hi Chris,

      Preflop: Since CO posted and checked I would raise here preflop. I'd make it 0.4-0.5.

      As played I would not donk/fold so small on that river.

      We can make it $2. As played we bet really small on both turn and river so villain can be induced to bluff so I wouldn't fold.

      As nokifpp said he can do this with AQ/QJ or busted FD.
