      Villain was mass multitabling and since he did not have a high AF I wouldn't consider him to be a TAG, although he was c-betting 73% (8/11), so I'm not quite sure how to categorize this player

      Preflop: Calling for implieds since villains range is quite strong in general and especially from this position, therefore if I flop a set then I think I will be able to extract value from OP's and TP's very often.

      Obviously my hand can play for value IP on a lot of boards as well since it is ahead of some parts of his range.

      Flop: bet/folding here for value / protection vs weaker PP's and overcards. When I get x/c'd I am confused, since I wouldn't expect villain to start x/c'ing any OP to this board as the PFA'r. This makes me think he either has 44/22 here, but I still think it's possible he plays this way with 55+. I would never expect this kind of player to x/c overs however.

      Turn:At the time I just decided to bet/fold again without really thinking, but I guess it only turns my hand into a bluff since I would not expect him call any weaker PP's now. I think it would be better to check behind and re-evaluate river.

      Hi Muel,

      Preflop: We are IP so calling is fine.

      Postflop: He is a nit and thus his range is stronger so a big cbet % should be expected.

      Since we cbet so small villain can ck/call hands like AQ/AK here and many fishy/nitty/regs do it.

      Other hands are 55-77 and rarely, if ever, A3/A5 hands.

      As played the river is an easy fold. He never bluffs there nor is he block betting for that much.
