      After watching one of pokerstrategy's videos, I decided to cold call quite often in those spots and keep his lower pocket pairs in his range. The flop was perfect to make him think that I'm bluffing. I expect him to call or shove all overpairs there. On the turn I was a bit scared of J's, but I had to go broke there..

      With his very low fold to 3bet flatting here is just a loss of value.
      If we do keep his small pockets we don't really win much against those postflop.

      On the flop I like raising here.

      Once he check/raises the turn though, I would rather go for a fold there.
      If he's going to bluff catch is with a PP he's probably gonna call it, not raise it.
