      Hi Vito,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Could you please explain your line here?

      Why do we go for a ck/raise on the flop rather than bet out ourselves? Why do we check call the small turn bet and then block bet the river small?

      I'd prefer to just bet flop/turn myself and then bet blank rivers like the 5h.

      Flop:
      The fish is pretty agro and will bet a lot of times in this spot. 9x, 4x hands, maybe some A high hands and also 55-88. And I know that he will call, because his fcbet is about 50 and Cold Call 42.

      Turn:
      We are already deep and I don't want to commit myself to the pot. I want to live me some space on the river to value bet it, and also to be able to fold if the river is a bad card or if he is slowplaying a flush.

      River:
      I valuebet and leave me some space to fold if he re-raises me.

      If you expect the fish to bet more often than he calls/raises then ck/raising is perfectly fine. However I'd probably raise it larger to 85-90c.

      As played I think we are letting him play close to perfect with our ck/call on the turn.

      Imagine how many bad rivers we have and if he is aggressive you run the risk of being bluffed out of the pot. How do you think your line looks to an aggro fish: ck/call super small turn bet, donk small river? Exactly like a block bet.

      Yeah, I agree. It's rather a block bet than a value bet.

      But guess what, I have chosen the right line to follow here. He did have a flush to K.
