      Anon. table.

      I`ve played few hands with him, he had autorebuy on, and he turned PP into a bluff on the river (in pretty bad spot do so imo (KQo hand), so i assume he is a very aggresive regular.

      On the turn, i decided to ch/c, because i don`t think i have FE vs. better hands (maybe some better Ax can fold), i have the best hand sometimes, and he might decided to bluff on flush rivers. Is this line ok, or i should bet the turn?

      I think your hand has too much equity on the turn to not bet. You won't be able to win unless you hit and your draw is very strong in BvB so I think betting is better than check/calling. When you bet yo also set your price plus you still make him fold air that could sometimes bluff you when you miss.

      I was thinking about maybe check/raising turn if he is aggressive but that is a bit too much imo since it offers him many ways to throw you off your very strong draw with his mediocre hands and other draws while also including a good amount of value hands in the same range.
