      Hero wins 67.5 BB

      33 hands, VPiP 26, call 3bet 2/3. In 3bet pot call cbet 2/2, turn call 1/1.
      Should I cbet turn? I thought he could have smaller PP or fd, and if I check behind he can bet large bluff, which scares me off?

      Preflop 3betting is fine, and considering that we are deep I'd make it 9-10bb here.

      I don't really like cbetting this board here. His calling range hits this board pretty well, also he has position and we have no good backdoors so I'd prefer to check/fold here.

      As played if we bet the turn here, he'd fold his 8x/7x/PP, and probably call with some draws (e.g. T9/JT/FD), but then what's the plan for the river if those draws miss? Are we going to feel comfortable check/calling on this river for example?
      I think betting and planning to check/call on a blank river will be fine.
