      Guy is normal reg 24/19 with not many hands on.

      I think he is not repping much by raising here so my plan is to call and check t him in order to keep 100% of his bluffing range in.

      For value I think he can have A6 or 66, though him raising so small makes me want to heavily discount those.

      Reasons behind his play? Trying to get max value out of my draws?

      Hey,

      Once villain checks he has showdown value imo so just pot turn, pot river on blanks. He'd bet just about all his air in these positions imo.

      Villain's possible reasoning: He bet small, he can have worse Kx, flushdraw or random Tx. I can raise for thin value or maybe bluff him off a A2s type hand and get a free showdown. A raise here puts in less money than when calling a turn bet and a river likely bet vs not a much different range.

      "Once villain checks he has showdown value imo so just pot turn, pot river on blanks. He'd bet just about all his air in these positions imo."

      If he would bet just about all his air why bet pot instead of checking to him?

      Or you mean he would bet all his air on the flop? Is this a good idea since my range hits that board pretty well?

      He would bet air on flop so when he checks there's no more air imo thus your hand is just about the nuts and he has a bluffcatcher. Make him pay! :-) I think it's your small bet that induced sort of a protection raise.
