      Hey,

      Any tendencies against a missed cbet? What's his fold to cbet? There are plenty of lines to consider here imo, yours being one of them but to decide which is best we need extra info.

      The way you played it makes sense if you can be quite certain he does this with most Jx in his range for value so you beat quite a few of his value hands plus you beat his bluffs.

      I'd say no particular tendencies, or I don't know them.
      Despite having many hands, I don't even remember these nits as I barely get to play with them.

      On Flop I bet for obvious reasons.
      On Turn I know xe has something, otherwise xe'd have folded immediately, but that something could be many things. So with the added equity of the FD I barrel.
      On xyr raise I think xe has a Jx, FH, or maybe QQ but I'm not sure, and bluffs ofc, as I barrel a ton on paired boards.

      So I decide to call for the odds and just XC.

      Yeah, I think your line is fine. You do have quite good equity and don't need him to bet too often on river when behind to get good enough price for turn raise.

      I sometimes take other lines against more aggressive and bluff happy opponents, like check/raise flop or turn, maybe check/call flop, check/raise turn.. Always think of when could those other lines make sense.
