      I get a great hand and decide to open it big because of the loose player in the SB, I get 3bet by a player with reasonable 3bet stat even though he might put me just for stealing, so I call to keep his lower range in and play on the flop

      Pretty dry flop, Q might hit him but he checks...I decide to check behind and try to bluffcatch, only card that I will really be afraid of is A and maybe J if he bets big on it...

      I call the turn, dont think this card helps him in any way, if I raise him I will likely make his bluffs fold and get called by Qx or higher...

      Another Q on the river...I have incline towards calling here instead of raising...I am pretty sure he isnt on a Qx card, he would probably be agressive with it on the flop + his river bet isnt big considering the pot, if I raise I will get called only by better...plan was to make him bluff and call it down, so I do that

      I don't mind raising on the bigger side due to SB here.
      When BB raises though, I prefer 4betting and getting it in.

      Definitely bet the flop here. We have a good hand and we want to take value.

      As played, calling down looks reasonable.
      We can't really raise the river here on this card, since I really doubt that he's going to end up calling with worse, so I think calling is fine.
