      Hi guys,

      Villain is a guy who I look for regularly as he plays 47/32 over a fairly good sample size.
      I elect not to cbet this flop as he calls everything, I presume this is correct against such a player??
      Then feel that a fold is my best line on turn after his bet. I see no need in playing a guessing game here and after all I only have Ace hi.

      Flop: I definitely agree with checking back here, cbet is no good as our fold equity is going to be very low

      Turn: We have the option of bluff catching with AK high which is the best non-paired hand. Given how wide we can expect villain to be playing preflop, I think the relative showdown value of AK high is pretty good here. We basically beat all non TX broadways.

      The bad part about this exact board is that there are a few bad cards on the River. Q/J are kind of bad as they coordinate the board further and hit broadway hands, pairing cards are always great for bluff catching with Ace high, other coordinating cards like 7/8 are bad as well.

      How many % of Rivers can we call? 2/3/4/5/6/9/T/A/K as compared to 7/8/J/Q. I think because we can call on 70% of rivers, I prefer just calling Turn and calling those cards on the River. You can even make an argument for calling 100% of rivers actually if villain is sufficiently aggressive.
