      I think my hand is deff misplayed here. I went for the x/r because of his low turn cbet but I think it is overplaying my hand and it does not make sense to do it unless I expect my hand to be good enough to stack with.

      I think that x/c donk turn might be better line or donking flop to begin with.

      How would you play it?

      c/c flop, donk turn makes some sense.

      However, I prefer check/calling down most often vs this CO. I'd check/raise vs 45-50+ open raise but who is a non-believer not any opener.

      He actually has reasonably high AFq on all streets so check/calling is probably the most obvious option and best EV before you have more dynamics. Which brings me to: 3.8k hands and nothing on him? :f_confused:

      We are in pretty aggressive dynamics, been battling with him since I started on this site. If I would play for many more hand on this site I would prolly study him but I will not do that. It's pretty hard to get ingame notes on players during playing because you don't see the losing hand at showdown on ongame :f_cry:
