      As villain limp calls pre I put him on a pocket pair or possibly Axs.
      The flop is not good for me but I put out a standard CBET which he calls.
      I pick up a FD on the turn and slow down and he bets 3/4 pot. I need about 30% equity to call this bet but am not getting anywhere near that if he has a set or Ax. I don't think my implied odds are good here as I don't think I can get payed when I hit my FD. Unless he specifically holds AQ with the Q of clubs.

      Villains stats suggest he is a pretty standard player but often makes bet sizing mistakes.

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I think your cbet is good.
      We can get called by worse hands - 8x/FD/PPs, and also we don't mind to take down the pot against his QT or so.

      I think checking the turn is fine. We are hardly getting called by worse, plus if we check I don't expect him to bet 8x or a PP.
      Once he bets around 3/4 pot I think folding is best.
      I doubt we have too much implied odds plus we are OOP so I would fold.
