      Hi.

      Preflop: standard defence vs wide restealing ranges
      Flop: On the Flop you should already have formulated your plan. If he has air he probably cbets this dry King high flop as a bluff.

      So we are mostly putting him on JJ/QQ/weak KX.

      You should either give up immediately or 3barrel. I would consider 3barrel bluffing with hands like JhTh (hands with some backdoor potential). With your hand here I just give up right away.

      I don't like your turn raise at all cos you rep completely nothing besides 55 (do you even defend that preflop?)

      Thanks.

      I wouldn't be so sure about it that he will cbet as bluff, his cbet stat is very wierd, he should have more even with the value hands. I was really not sure what to make of this guy massive 3betting as bluff but no cbets ?

      He has 20%+ range here, and i don't think you can limit him to JJ/QQ/weak KX but he clearly has a lot of junk.

      I was planning to check it down, but later he tried to rep that he has something it is just unlikely but he actually did so i guess could have sticked with checkdown. Turning my hand into bluff is legit too then starting on the flop is probably my best bet.

      True that his cbet % is very low and weird. Still, you should have already formed your plan: Check and hope he gives up, or bluff and barrel.

      His delayed cbet is so indicative of a medium strength made hand and remember that when you want to bluff you should always be able to represent something. To me, your play looks like a semi-bluff the most (with hearts) and on the River it's a snap fold.

      Do you really expect him to bet/call the Turn with QQ and then fold on the River King? The flush draw missed, and it is less likely for you to now have a King. Easy c/c for him.
