      Hi Ilidek,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Great flop for us so cbet is perfectly fine. On the turn, given how the action played (min raise BTN, and small raise) I think we can both call and 3-bet. Villain can be semibluffing or raising as a bluff. A lot of people would also raise the flop with their strong FDs so he shouldn't have that many in his range.

      So the only question is if we should raise the turn to charge AcX hands or just call and call river (let him bluff). I think you can go either way against an unknown player.

      hmm you consider 3bet line here because w/ nutz FD he would probably just flat call our barrel on the turn and we he has weaker hand he can play line like this?

      I still think that he can occasionally have a better flush, no doubt about that. But I also think it's very possible for him to semibluff here (with Ac, Kc, etc) or just outright bluff. So we can consider 3-bet to get value from his NFD type hands if that's our assumption.

      Of course the safer play is to call and play river, call blank rivers.
