      villain is 24/24 and 3bet 18.2% over 31 hands. so it's no sample but he's obviously pretty active preflop so i decided to flat IP since i might get a cbet out of him whereas he probably will just fold if i 4bet. i'm regretting this now though and i should probably have just 4bet for the dead money.

      should i raise here?

      i can't bet since i turn my hand into a bluff and i don't think he's folding many hands at all since his range is like AK/AQ/AA and maybe something like AT.

      i can't do anything now. in my mind i'm thinking he has max FE when he plays this way so he could be FOS but i doubt he is ever FOS here.

      I actually prefer 4betting here preflop and getting the money in.
      Flatting is an option but then we risk to see a bad board and basically without information I think 4betting and going broke is better.

      As played preflop, I think just calling the flop is good. Board is quite dry so there isn't too much to be scared from.

      I think checking back the turn is good.
      If we can take value from hands like Tx/JJ it will only be on one street so we can take in on the river.
      Also, by checking we prevent being check/raised.

      I think the river is an easy fold.
      This is almost never a bluff and calling here would be bad.
