      Villain is reg. Remembered him in previous sessions losing 2-3 buyin on 1 table (1 to me) and going on tilt. Generally he doesn't give credit to players for made hands esp on flop.
      Pre: sometimes i'm folding kqo( esp in very loose game)
      Flop: because of history(in previous hands he was betting raising vs me a lot) didn't like to bet and thought this is good for balancing my checking range ( to him when i check i am most of the time folding turn). He always thinks that i'm betting the flop because of the board texture (mine cbet/68, higher in utg, mp).
      Turn: Don't know what this bet means ( maybe going for c/r), prob nothing.
      River: size of raise? He had trips t

      No... BET this, it's draw heavy and if he never folds, then this is great opportunity to get value for your hit. On NL4 you don't have to balance too much. If the board was like Q72 and he fold to cbets on flop 70 % and bluffs often, then I could chback.

      Hi Dalmar,

      Preflop: looks fine, our hand is strong enough to open

      Postflop: I don't like our check "for balancing" at all.

      You said it yourself: he does not believe people and calls light. That's what you want to punish, his willingness to pay you with garbage.

      Please forget about balancing at 4nl and focus on one thing: value, value, value !

      As played his min bets are probably inducer bets so we can raise/fold turn or just call and play river.

      On the river we can probably make it even bigger because we know him as a station.
