      No stats. Have been experimenting with c/c,c/r lines instead of cbets on certain boards.

      River bluff is weird, I don't know if unknown folds QT/JT etc. here since all the big spades are on the board, especially if he thinks I c/r pair+fd+gs hands, which is pretty much everything that I'm trying to rep for the river. The only think I credibly rep is QQ/JJ with a spade (and slowplayed royal...).

      It's still nice to bluff him off a chop, and prevent getting bluffed by worse/chop.

      Flop: I like checking a lot of hands on such flops. We usually can't go for 3 streets of value on such a wet flop and so many cards just kill our hand. We also cannot bet/call most of the time, and your kicker is a little too weak. Basically I just think you cannot value bet the Flop most of the time, as his calling range should be doing fairly well against you.

      Turn: Depends on how aggro villain is. If he's really passive just fold turn, if he's more aggro I think a call is acceptable.

      River: I don't like the bet here too much. He is repping some Qs/Js type of semi-bluff by betting twice, or he is repping something like a full house. I don't think he bets twice too often with something with medium strength (like AhQh). I feel like we will just run into better hands so often and he will just fold his air.
