      He had the tendency to raise a bit too much on flop, so I decided to call, as I felt like he was trying to push me out of pots too many times.
      Because of this I called even the turn, but on the river I grasped he probably had AA or sets.
      Looked like a perfectly planned way to bet the minimal amount just right to get all-in on river for half pot.
      Who knows, maybe even the QQ I beat, but that's a bit too tiny for me for a stack.

      Specifically in 3bet pots? There are players that raise a lot of flops in single-raised pots but rarely raise flop in 3bet pots.

      I would probably fold flop vs unknown, but if this guy really is playing back in 3bet pots your flop line is good.

      I would be tempted to check/raise turn for protection/value. Presumably he can have a lot of draws / air in his range as well as just sets. Calling flop would be a mistake otherwise.

      As played I don't think you can call J river, it completes FD he was semibluffing with and he may not be pure bluffing for half pot.

      You mean calling turn right?

      I mean calling flop.

      If you felt he didn't have draws/air in his range by the turn you shouldn't have got to the turn in the first place perhaps. I was purely talking about his turn range though, not necessarily his turn betting range. Perhaps you feel he is never semi-bluffing turn here?
