      Villain stats are 27/15 AF 1.7 over 220 hands his fold to cbet is 70% on this sample

      I cbet on the flop because I think Im ahead of his limping range and dont think he has A that often here, hoping to get the pot right on the flop

      Turn bet was for lighter value in case he did have A on the flop or if he just peeled it with J or 7 made hands....was my sizing here ok? should I have bet bigger or just checked after he called my flop bet and why?

      on river he donks into me for 1/3 pot, another 7 comes in and I somehow feel I might not be ahead if I was at all...was this correct fold or should I have called here?

      also saw him donk in AQJr board for 1/4 pot with his QT and he procceded to call a big raise and a pot bet on the turn when 9 came and then he just calls a min bet on T turn so I dont think the player is very good considering his weird lines...

      thank you

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I don't mind cbetting the flop here. We are happy to just take down the pot right here, plus we can get called by worse.

      On the turn I like betting again here, since some of his hands such as JT/J9/7T/79 now have pair + gutshot so he'd be more inclined to call. Also FD got there as well.
      I don't like your sizing here at all - I'd just make it around $0.35.

      On the river his bet sucks here. We could go for a call here, since he showed that he make smallish bets with weak made hands, but on the other hand I really don't expect him to play this way with Jx so I don't have anything against the fold and I like it.

      Best,
      Plamen
