      VPIP: 16, PFR: 11, 3B: 3, AF: 1,8, Hands: 2165

      I call PF because of small raise, mostly (but not strictly, as he is a strange player) hoping to twopair+.

      Not sure of what his small donk could mean, I call it as I hardly believe he's on a draw, so it's ok to give free cards, I also have a backdoor.

      Same size same donk, I call for the same reason and see the river to re-evaluate.

      His check here makes me think of middle pairs, weaker kings, or maybe some two pair that wants to see the showdown anyway.
      Therefore I go for the denial of such thing, also because I've got a very good card to bluff on, making him believe that I was on a reasonable FD or SD that closed.

      Thoughts?

      Hi.

      I think Pre-Turn are all very standard. I'm not too sure how much I like the River bluff though. Against a decent player I think he would fold AK a lot cos he would expect us to check back weaker KX and only bet the river with straights and sets. So turning our KJ into a bluff makes sense.

      But against this guy who i presume is some sort of a fish given his bad preflop sizing and weird bet sizing, it may not be too good of a play.

      So in short, it depends on whether villain check/folds his AK/AA or not.

      Thanks.

      What do you think about raising on flop instead?
