      Hero wins 130.7 BB

      83 hands, 80VPiP, 20 PFR. Cbet flop 3/3, turn and river 1/1.
      I saw him once bluffing with air, so decided to take passive line.
      Is it ok to raise preflop with A9, considering his 80 VPiP?
      Turn too scary, but still I saw him bluffing.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine since he is really loose however, since we are deep, we can't really play huge pots with this type of hand.

      Flop: If we were HU I don't mind ck/calling but multiway I prefer to bet out. Also, seeing him bluff once can tell us more about his bet sizing, timing tells, ranges. So that would be important here (however one sample is not huge).

      As played we are somewhat guessing here. What's the bet size that you would fold versus on the river?

      For me the turn is closer to a bet fold not just because it's a scare card but because we also have BB left to act who could be slowplaying something.
