      bad feeling that I play badly. If he raised all in I would have folded... Feeling really bad. Thought:
      if he has a draw, he just calls;
      if he has a better hand, he raises;
      if he is bluffing, he folds.
      If he has an overpair/top pair, have no clue what he would do

      Hi Ezeras,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Let's address the first thing, why are we checking the flop? Why not cbet?

      Second, the ck/raise on the turn is way too random. We gain little value and better rarely ever folds. On top of that we don't get him to fold a ton of equity in the pot as he has at most a few outs.

      I didn't want to cbet on flop because I didn't want a raise from him and I would look weak and he would bet a lot with worse hands... How would you play this hand? Cbet on flop and what to do vs raise? what would you do on turn after that?

      If you are afraid of a raise that implies that villain is aggro. If villain is aggro that means that he can raise with a lot more than just the "nuts" (like sets, 67) so we would definitely not be folding. Depending on the cbet/raise size we can either 3-bet or call.

      I would simply cbet and play it from there.

      Now you do have 250 hands on him so we can take a look at his overall stats and see how often he folds to cbet vs how often he bets vs missed cbet (and also check his raise cbet stats). Combine that with any reads we have and we can come out with a solid plan.

      he doesn't raise, he bets 70% after missed CB. What line we should play?

      Does he fold to cbets?

      That's also important.

      If he does fold a fair amount then we can go for a ck/raise unless he's super aggro on the turn/river.
