      Villain who opened had 50 hands on him, who seemed very happy to barrel 3 streets thinly, he folded to all 3bets so far hence my call. Also wanted to keep BU in as he seemed fishy.

      Didn't raise the flop to keep BU in the pot. Also with the A hearts that limits the flush draw
      was stuck on the river whether to call or not as i thought with the K he may slow up, but then my hand was massively under repped so he may still think top pair top kicker may be good. If he had a set i thought he may shove the river. After a thought he could of had a lot of two pairs with how the board ran out but with his happyness to barrel a lot i thought he could do it with a pair middle to high kicker

      Hello,

      Definitely 3bet preflop. Just refrain yourself from calling in these spots unless you have some very good information about the player which we can hardly have in just 50 hands.

      On the flop calling is fine.

      I think turn should be a call as well, since I do expect him to bet weaker hands here as well.

      I think that the river is rather a fold here. I'm not sure how often he'd bluff busted draws and I can hardly see him value betting worse hands here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      if the turn and river cards were reversed would would you still say the best choice would be to fold?

      Overall yes.

      I don't think people are going to bluff here a lot, and I don't really see him value betting worse on this board texture.
