      VPIP: 63, PFR: 15, 3B: 11, AF: 2,6, Hands: 80

      So he's someone who likes to bluff a lot (I eventually eliminated him 2 hands later), therefore I decided to actually go for passive road due to my equity (if I didn't have any I'd have raise/folded), 'cos he likes to raise out ppl of the hands, but he does that too when he has big stuff.
      Is it a correct resolution given the assumptions?
      I just went for the odds basically.
      If board didn't hit his range that much I'd have got more aggressive.

      If he bets like that and calls often I sort of prefer raising but your reasoning is correct that you have good equity and are possibly ahead. What I'm thinking is that you raise here and he's likely to call then check to you on the turn, thus you can see river with a sort of hand you want to see all the cards and still bluff him of some equity on the flop.
