      Villain is 50/15/0 A.F 10.0 over 20 hands.

      PF: I iso-raise for value vs his limp.

      Flop: I opted for x/c because I felt betting would just isolate me w all his hands that beat me and very few hands that I beat. Maybe QT, Q9 and some GS.

      Turn: The Turn didn't change much so I opted to play x/c again and keep his whole range in. I believe I can only get 1 street of value on this hand, and doing it on the River would be best.

      River: It's not very likely he had an Ace since he checked behind on the Flop. I was actually going for his weaker PP like 77-TT which I hoped he will call, as the way I played doesn't really make sense I suppose? Or it's obv I had Qx? Lol.

      I would call if he 3-bet shove since he was short already. He might do it w Ax and some weaker Qx

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given the fact that he is shorter there isn't a ton of value in a flop bet. Ck/calling is villain dependent (if they can actually bluff).

      As played both turn and river look fine.
