      The villain is a very good winning reg and is playing with stats 22/15/6.1, fold to cbet 0/1, in 90 hands.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10)
      BB ($12.66)
      UTG ($3.35)
      Hero ($10)
      BTN ($13)

      Dealt to Hero 2:spade: A:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.75) 3:spade: 4:diamond: A:diamond:

      Hero bets $0.48, BTN raises to $1.20, Hero calls $0.72

      TURN ($3.15) 3:spade: 4:diamond: A:diamond: T:heart:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      RIVER ($3.15) 3:spade: 4:diamond: A:diamond: T:heart: K:heart:

      Hero checks

      On the flop I call because I think that his raise here is most of the times a bluff. Also, there are many turns which are good for our hand. What do you think?

      Hey acetbfish,

      Normally I don't assume players at this limit are bluff-raising flops unless I have seen them do it or they are raising a lot of flops.

      Assuming this is the case your call is fine. Villain may have a draw a lot. This play is especially good if villain does not raise Ax for value here. Your hand is good a decent amount and 2 or 5 are probably good outs you are behind.

      Having said that, you are saying villain is a "very good" reg, of which very few exist at 10nl. Not sure why you'd want to go out of your way to play OOP against a very good reg when you could be playing against fish. Even if you hand is good on the flop a very good opponent might get you to fold it by the river.
