      Villain is 37/30 over 45 hands and very aggressive post flop but no raises as yet. I'm assuming that he would just check shove if he had a Q and wanted to protect against the FD.
      I think this is probably a bit nitty. Against a loose guy with a half stack should we always just get TP in unless the board is nasty?

      Hey ChangNoi

      Preflop is fine.

      Cbet for value is fine.

      I think the fact that he has not raised postflop yet is important. Just because someone is playing 37/30 over 45 hands does not mean he is necessarily raising light postflop. In some cases villains like this may even be less aggressive since they connect with the board less often.

      It's debatable he would do this. Even if he did I think it would mostly be AQ which beats you anyway.

      If your goal is to extract value from worse Qx, 88-JJ, and one-card flush draws, bet a little smaller on turn imo.

      I think folding to villain's check-raise was the best play.
