      Hello people,
      Villain was playing 75/0 and with 6 of PostFlopAggresionFactor in 8 hands, so I decided to call the flop bet to raise any turn because I thought I was very ahead of his range (I think he had Tx, some flush and Straight draw, but not a strong made hand)... but, I think this was a mistake because it was a heavy board, do you think that I had to raise that flop for protection?
      And on the turn with that kind of board, the question is if it is better to call again the turn to get more value from the Villain.

      Hi Raider,

      The sample you have on the guy should not be used to make a decision based on it. Especially not for aggression. All we know is that he may be fishy because he played 6 of 8 hands.

      On the flop we don't want to raise for protection as our main reason. We want to raise for value and protection is a by product. Can worse hands call? Can many worse hands call.

      I'd say that yes, we can raise/fold to 1.2 on the flop and bet turn and probably ck river unimproved.
