      Vilain is a bad nit regular 18/10 319 hand. Should I try to value turn or better check back the turn and thin value river ?
      On the turn when vilain raise me, I m surprise since I double barrel here not very often less than trips or better. Tough for me to believe him and decide to call. On the river, I decide to call the blockbet hoping he value less than trips.

      Turn is close between bet and check back. Given that he is tight i think he may have more pocketpairs than TX so the turn bet with the intention of checking back river should be fine..

      Abt your logic, since u know u are rarely bluffing and yet he still reraises u in a spot where your range is strong, it simply means that he is strong himself. Anyway he is a nit and wont get out of line. And theres no way he is value raising a hand worse than yours.

      Since u lose to all his value hands and he rarely bluff raises u this is an easy bet fold on the turn
