      Hi Deo,

      Considering BTN plays shortser and your stats show a big gap between vpip and pfr he is most likely a recreational player. Because of that I would assume that he has a lot of Ax hands in his range for calling that flop and we can get value from them on turn/river although I'd probably bet 1/2 on both streets to keep his range as wide as possible.

      The flop cbet is questionable though because of SB being really short and you playing inbetween 2 guys on A high flop. So you have very little value in a bet nor can you bet as a bluff.
