      Hey,

      How do you not have anything but stats vs him after 5k hands?

      When he bets so small on the flop he is trying a cheap bluff in my view (but after 5k hands you should already know his default cbet size in such a spot, I don't) meaning I would never fold. Raising doesn't make much sense either, I don't think we can raise/4bet shove profitably on the flop.. we need him to spew 3bet a lot to do this 140bb deep. It's also one of the best hands to call and reach river 100% of the time when you can decide based on his action and range.

      Datamine..

      My problem with the call in this spots is:
      Would i only flat with a monster on the flop?
      I might raise often this boards for bluff semi-bluff.
      So when i just call my range get very capped, unless we pretend to face the bullets and call down..

      OK, first of all, datamining just to have stats is kind of a waste. If you get the hands, start reasearching your opponents, check out who's a winner, who's a loser, mark regulars, find out their ranges in common spots: open raise, 3bet, 4bet, 5bet, cbet, vs cbet, flop check/raise.

      As for the hand, unless your opponent is a player that doesn't believe your raises here (so you induce light calls/ raises when you raise) you remain with a good bluffcatcher vs his range so you can't raise here.

      If you are worried that your perceived range is capped you a) call down more or b) uncap your actual range so he makes a mistake.
