      Villain was quite aggro and seemed happy to barrel off, wasn't too sure whether to raise as it looks strong on such a draw less board

      Hi DrRaab,

      Given the board texture we can also look at raising for value. I'm assuming we called preflop because he was opening wide which means that he can have a lot of pair+draw that can call.

      As played we should look at raising the turn if we didn't raise the flop.
