      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): $12.48
      UTG: $23.34
      MP: $10.51
      CO: $11.96
      BTN: $10.70
      SB: $9.90

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:spade: J:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.40, fold, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.85, 2 players) A:spade: J:club: 5:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.85, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      River: ($1.85, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.92, Hero calls $0.92

      Hero mucks Q:spade: J:spade: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 32%, Flop 6%, Turn 0%)
      BTN shows A:club: J:heart: (Two Pair, Aces and Jacks) (Pre 68%, Flop 94%, Turn 100%)
      BTN wins $3.45

      Villain is a 32/24 fish over 200 hands.

      I initially wanted to 3bet him, but because he didn't like folding to 3bets too much I decided to call.

      My plan was to check/call the flop, and then evaluate the turn. When he checked though, I was pretty confident I was ahead. He would most likely bet Ax on this flop, especially because he was pretty agressive. So I decided to go in check/call mode, because I made myself look very week by checking 3 times, and I figured he could bluff here a decent amount of the time.

      Should I play this any differently against an aggressive player?

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Once BTN checks he usually has a weak Ax, Jx type hand or a monster.

      Turn: Checking again to let him bluff is fine.

      River: If he is an aggressive guy we have to ck/call here. Otherwise, considering that the backdoor flush got there we can also ck/fold.
