      Hi

      Villain 27/24/30hands.

      Now he check/raises there as PFA and lately I've seen that these moves are like always air so I decided to float ones also because he barrels my outs.

      Now on the turn I think he almost always check/folds and I just bet to make him fold some random overs. Should I just check?!

      On the river I don't think he calls worse than sets tbh. Maybe he has worse hearts? Diamonds folds so I was thinking I was going to valuetown myself too much at the time.

      Hi.

      If he is checkraising you should not be stabbing but value betting very thinly.

      Ok forget what I said, I misread what you wrote, thought you said that the villain was always full of it vs you. If there was such a dynamic I would just avoid betting the Flop so often.

      I think the float may be fine, we have backdoors and 2 overs and i agree that people don't take this line for value all that much.

      As played, very easy bet on Turn and River. River size could be big or small, small to induce and big just to look bluffy and go for max value.
