      Villain is probably fishy but I'm not sure. I would have played 3bet/broke here vs his stack cause BvB a lot of players spew if they got 3bet. + he could call dominated hands ofc.

      Now flop/turn? :)

      I thought he could have some QJ hands or something so I just called :P

      I think we have too little equity to try and bluff here. A lot of hands connect on this board so I think we have like 10% FE at best

      I think flop is a raise or fold. You have too little equity to float imo. You expect a bet reasonably often and you represent less when just floating and then raising. If you raise now you represent all your best value hands while you cannot do that by calling.

      Folding is not a crime and you won't get punished with a life sentence :D . I had to teach that myself over and over cus I typically hate folding in spots like this. But the truth is he prob is like never folding vs a raise and you don't have enough equity to float even. with As it's slightly better imo and even then I think I slightly prefer raising but not sure atm.
