      villain seems like a reg over ~32 hands but other than that he's an unknown. i didn't cbet this flop because i don't think i'd get a ton of credit given the positions so i decided to check call and let him stab. i don't expect SDV like PPs to stab when checked to, and he doesnt always have Ax either... so i decided to check/call once and check it down. i doubt the board can get much scarier so i don't expect a lot of barrels. what do you think or should i just cbet/give up?

      I would just bet flop here as i think it just plays better. The board is rly nice for bluffing at. It doesnt matter if u dont have an ace as often as u would in utg - if he has his undercards he would usually be forced to fold flop anyway unless he has backdoor draws like K:sQ.
