      47/33 27% 3bet, 25% agg.freq. 38% Cbet 116 hands.

      I know that he check flop with weak pairs in 3bet pots and calls turn.

      I think preflop is ok.

      On the flop? I decided to call for this price and try to take down the pot later or hit.

      On the turn i pick up some equity, but is it a good idea to bluff this guy, even when he bets so small?

      I think he can raise you even with pure air, because your line looks as a bluff to me. You 4bet probably AK, QQ+, if you would call with KQ, probably you would be very happy to call down his small bets (bluff catch), so I think you represent only KJ here, maybe JJ (if you dont 4bet it)

      His small sizing indicates that he has strong hand and bluff induces you. If you say he checks flop with weaker hands, so he would check with QQ and call down T and R. I dont think he is bluffing purely here, because people usually bet larger to have fold equity.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Very standard call.

      Flop: I'm calling here with the intention of floating on some river cards and taking the showdown on others.

      Turn: This is a pretty unusual spot, I think I prefer calling again. Not too sure how much fold equity you actually have.
