      PRE
      Sample is rather small and that`s why I can`t really 3-bet for value. Wouldn`t want to turn my hand into a bluff.

      FLOP
      Villain is c-betting Ax hands and FD`s. I x/r because he`s most likely calling x/r with them and this way I can build up a pot.

      TURN
      I`m targeting Ax of course. Had to bet slightly bigger though, so I can pot-shove river.

      RIVER
      Not too big of an over-bet.

      Hey Dienaszaglis,

      It's the type of flop you could consider flat-calling with a set. However given that villain has a low cbet stat so far his range is weighted more towards Ax and FD's as you mention. c/r is good.

      I agree with your turn comments, bet a little bigger so you don't need to overbet river. (Also this is your last chance to extract value from any heart draws that brick.)

      River is ok. Might be better to bet a little smaller anyway. FD's busted and he may not call such a large bet with Ax. But....he might...so nothing too wrong here. Sometimes you can even think about under-betting river, hoping to induce a raise from Ax and still giving your opponent enough rope to bluff with busted draws.
