      Hello, this is my last hand for today :P

      I only have 60 hands on villain, but he sat down on the table with only 30BB and his stats were 31 vpip and 2 pfr, so that was kinda fishy.

      thoughts on flop: protection and maybe value from hands like 67?
      He called and I didn't like the turn since AcXc beat me, and also A6 and A3 or if he called with some random overcards.

      Reasons to check turn: pot control, I cant get value from much hands (only if he misplays a draw)
      Reasons to bet: protection for straight/flush draws and the ace could also be a scarecard for him, and let him lay down hands like 9X type of hands.

      what do you guys think?

      Hi Pew,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Considering his stack size I doubt that he folds anything that called that flop.

      If we check the turn we pretty much have to call a lot of rivers but I prefer to just shove. If we had more money, let's say 30BB+ (left) I'd just check and possibly fold river.
