      I think preflop is fine to squeeze for value.

      On the flop? I saw him ch/c twice TPNK on dry board in single raise pot (J9o on 945r Kr)

      So i`m not sure what he is raising there. Perhaps stronger made hands and some draws and maybe some random hands? During play, i folded because i thought that he will barrel me (because of turn/river agg.freq) and we were deeper.

      But folding is too weak vs. him and i don`t like it now.

      I guess my best play is to call flop and perhaps bluffcatch on blank turns?

      I disagree with your play and agree with your postgame analysis. Odds to call on flop are way too good and we are up against a ton of draws on this flop.

      Call blank turns, fold on turns and decide on blank rivers whether he bluffs enough of the time.
