      Is calling his flop raise really weak? I don't think he does this with Tx very often but a set of tens is only 3 combos and 3x is less likely. Not sure about QQ+ as he seems quite passive he may have these also. If I rise I don't see much worse calling

      Hi Kevin,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: As a default I would bet/fold this flop here. We have no information that would lead us to believe that villain is doing this light or with a worse hand for value. Considering we also have two more streets to go we can expect further action so instead of folding later on we can just muck the flop. The turn changes nothing so if we liked our hand on the flop it's the same thing on the turn.

      Yes I think how I react to min ck/raises is a major leak. I look at the odds in isolation of the rest of the hands and think I can just call.

      Your best bet is to play it safer and make your decisions based on the reads you have (ex: if you saw villain call down TPGK then it implies that he will rarely raise those hands).

      Bluffcatching is great versus bluffy players. But to know someone is bluffy we need information because by default people are passive :)
