      Flop: bet/called this OTF because I didn't expect villain to play better FD's this way and I thought he would most likely play some AX and 2pr+ this way. I felt that I had the correct implied odds to call this x/rai.

      I am getting 3.42:1 on a call and need 4.2:1 to make calling profitable. Am I right in saying that if I can pick up at least 1/2 pot (10BB) bet on the turn / river then calling the flop is profitable?

      Turn: I call the turn bet for the same reason as OTF except I would need another 20bb on the river which is reasonable to think I would get this given that villain has taken such a strong line.

      River: Didn't see bluffing as an option here since 1) villain seems so strong 2) it is an excellent spot for villain to x/c for bluff induce vs a missed draw.

      I like the way you played the hand here.

      Calling the flop against the raise is definitely good.

      On the turn, against his sizing and considering the fact that his WTSD is quite high, I'd call as well.

      As played, there's no point to bluff the river here, so checking back is fine.
