      Hey guys

      vill: 15/10 after 157 hands
      Raise cb: 50 (4)
      AF: 6,0

      Pre: ok

      Flop: I don't believe him here really. I block 55/66 and if he had JJ he would 3b pre most of the time. So I think I'm in good shape here.

      Turn: Not the best card but I'm still happy.

      River: It's a blank so I should still be happy so I called.

      This might all be very bad.

      Flop: I guess you block sets. Maybe he check/raises flop with draws which you can gain value from by 3betting. Maybe he sometimes c/r AJ for thin value.

      I feel that 56 is a little vulnerable so I'll just 3bet for value. After all if you are not 3betting 56 then what are you 3betting here with? Of course you could argue that you can just flat your entire range IP but I think it's fine to 3bet some hands (some as bluffs, sometimes with combo draws, and sometimes with 56 or overpairs).

      If we think he's aggro then I don't mind just flatting and inducing though.

      Turn: Don't see how you can ever fold here on this T+R when the flush draw misses. If you do a range analysis you'll find that his value range is really narrow, only repping 56s/55/66/89 and that's about it. At the same time he's repping a good amount of busted flush draws, maybe he turns stuff like 79 or 89 into a bluff.
