      Inducing bluffs can be good in this spot? No value in betting the turn, but it seems he is kinda agressive, and likes floating.

      BTN is pretty tight here so I don't see him having too many 5X combos. His fold to Flop cbet looks pretty standard, maybe it could be considered high for someone playing so tight preflop since his range should be stronger than the average regular.

      When he calls the Flop and bets the Turn, I think we are beat here almost always. I don't expect him to bet TT or 99 or J9s here, so we are behind a range of QJs/KJ/AJ/A5s. We could argue for a check/fold here, unless we expect him to call flop with worse than JX (like TT) and turn it into a bluff on the Turn.

      Should we bet the Turn then? Definitely not. We just end up isolating ourselves vs QJ-AJ.

      As played, I think c/c River is fine. We will lose to QJ quite a bit but he may overplay AJ sometimes.
