      PREFLOP
      Standard open.

      FLOP
      Value bet.

      TURN
      Given his overall profile I figure he floats quite some of these dry boards.
      Opted to c/c vs his bluffs.
      His sizing of $0.55 indicates a value hand as it is +1BB of 2/3 pot.

      RIVER
      He insta bets river. His sizing is also a bit big (coupled with sizing on the turn) - indicates strength/value.
      I feel like I am being bluffed here so often and if he bluffs this way than good job.
      It was really hard to fold this one.

      Hello,

      I would recommend you to just bet the turn yourself and not get into those nasty spots where you just don't know where you are at.

      As played on the turn, I would rather fold the river, as I don't really expect people to bluff a lot in these spots.

      Best,
      Plamen
