      Easy call. He reps backdoor flushes only, which is such a small part of his range. I'm not giving him credit for too many Q3/J3 type of hands. I think he can definitely take this line with some bluffs too, like 89s floating the flop with backdoor draws, or straight draws like KT T9 AT AK etc.

      I don't know how good Japanese strategy material is, you probably need to read more English material. Majority of the top winners around the world are American/European, so I would suppose that English strategy material is better, simply because there are more English-speaking poker professionals.

      From what I see here, you are still not aggressive enough. 19/16 is still really tight, so is the 5% 3bet. Fold to Flop cbet is 65% which is super exploitable. I would exploit you by just stealing all your blinds and cbetting the majority of flops because you are just folding way too often.

      Learn how to defend more as the caller first, then start playing more hands as you get better. There seems to be a huge problem because you play with a much stronger preflop range than others, yet you play so much more weakly. by right when your range is stronger, you should be folding less flops, simply because you have Ace high and pairs much more often.

      You can also get private coaching from one of the coaches here. Since you are playing NL25 level with some NL50, you might want to look for a coach who charges ~$50/h.
