      VPIP: 17, PFR: 12, 3B: 6, AF: 2,3, Hands: 12406

      A bit uncertain on flop but I do bet as he folds SO many times on monochrome boards and on such cards.
      Turn I call purely for mathematical odds (3:1).
      Obvious give up on river.

      Hi

      I prefer betting turn instead of chk call turn. Q coordinates the board though which is kind of bad for us. We can def bomb some blank rivers esp if villain is nitty. We are deep pre so i expect villain to have many more speculativr hands which cannot stand a huge river bet.

      He has WTSD 28
      And W$SD 70, 73 without small pots.

      Flop fold to Cbet 33 (15), turn 0 but only on 3 samples
      His AF is 3F, 2T, 6R.

      WTSD W$SD play in favor of my play, while FFCBet and AF play in favor of bet turn.

      Considering tho that turn is a bad card, and that not many times river is a blank, and considering his WTSD to be pretty high, I'm truly torn and not convinced on what to do.

      If before I thought playing safe was a good idea, now i'm 50% between safe and aggro play.

      What's ur take on it?
      Need any other info?

      Oh I also know he usually prefers to play nutFD or FD+pair aggressively, but I have not much info on a 3Bet pot. So I don't know if this stands true.

      I dun rly like the idea of cx turn with a non nutflush. And i think betting just gives you more options. I dont think the other factors are too impt. And main disadvantage of betting is that we hav to fold vs a raise. But i rly think that that happens rly rarely. So betting seems to be better.
