      PREFLOP
      Should not steal so wide vs a guy who doesn't fold.
      So fold preflop.

      FLOP
      Dry flop, opted to cbet bluff with a couple of backdoors.
      Again, this guy doesn't seem to fold to cbets so could have gave up.
      On the other hand, the sample is rather small.

      TURN
      Value betting vs OC / 3x / 2x. He does not fold much to cbets so I assume there are a lot of floats in his range.

      RIVER
      Making a thin value bet. Sizing is small to allow 2x / 3x to call. Easy fold vs a raise as I am behind his value range.
      I have no evidence to suggest that he could be bluffing here with air.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop:given that BB is most likely fishy I don't like our open with 74s.

      Postflop: As played cbet slightly larger on the flop and just ck/fold turn. You don't have enough value in a bet considering all the better pairs in his range.
