      What you think about Turn play?
      Maybe he calls on flop like AK or JJ/TT but then Turn is snap shove?

      Preflop: Seems a little too large, but if you know he hardly folds to 3bets (which could easily be the case when he plays 80% of preflop hands), then I like it.

      Flop: Not sure why you are betting so large, I think 4 should suffice. We want him to float us really light on the flop with his AX or backdoor hands like JsKs.

      As played, I think river sucks but if we think he floats the flop light with AX or some backdoor type of hand (shown by a lot fold to Flop cbet % of <40%), then we should call here. If he plays fairly fit or fold, and folds a lot to flop cbets, then maybe a fold is correct here.

      Just note that we still beat some busted draws, like TJ J9 T9.
