      opp, seems to be unknown agressive regular 31/26/42h, AF 9.0 - small sample
      I expected him to lose 3bet me here, due to my image. Have to cbet such flop I think, it's a standart bet-fold. On the turn I want to see the free showdown, so check behind. And the river is... I don't know. :)
      Is there call on the river?
      Any other possible lines? Is it a good idea to cbet the flop?

      river is easy call, since he would shove there a lot worse hands starting with QJ and ending some flushdraws that he did not want to get all- in on the flop.

      I think turn is interesting decision spot. I would likely b/c 7$ and then take my free showdown, since pot is very big and I don´t think I can fold almost at any river if he decides to shove (so I should also protect my hand)

      Other option would be check back flop and then cal him down (to induce bluffs)

      best regards,
