      UTG: $2.02 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 9, 3B: 3, AF: 1.5, Hands: 313

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is CO with Q :heart: K :heart:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.15) 5 :spade: K :spade: 2 :spade: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.12, MP calls $0.12

      Turn: ($0.39) Q :diamond: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.32, MP raises to $0.70, Hero raises to $1.82, MP calls $1.12

      During these few hands that I played with the villain, he check-raised me at least twice. That's why after his turn check-raise I think he actually might do it with semi-bluffs (like QsX) or even top pairs.

      When I decided that I'm not folding, to stack right here seemed the best option to get value from his one spade hands.

      What do you think? Without seeing him check-raising couple of times in last 15 minutes I wouldn't call turn.

      i think he may be running hot. did u see his hands at showdown and whether he was bluffing?

      my basic assumption here is that a 61/19 guy is passive and the turn c/r is the nuts. i think u should bet fold the turn here cos he almost always has the flush.

      Alright, I knew that you gonna say that :) I had kinda lame reasoning.

      He actually showed 99 with a spade, but in the long run there's not enough info on him to assume he would raise (and call!) these hands.

      Maybe I just saw something that I couldn't remember or explain (like some really weird check raises that I didn't call just because I had air myself), or maybe I did a flat out -EV move :f_biggrin:

      Still hope it's the former. Thanks for the evaluation ;)
