      He is capable of checking sometimes. But when I did not cbet (because he does not fold) I expected him to bet. Not sure if my bluffcatcher is good enough without info how he bets vs missed cbets.

      Hi.

      Flop: AJ is way too weak to c/c especially on this board texture where so many turns and rivers can kill your hand. You should either c/f or c/r. I don't mind c/r-ing A:dX and you can then shove Turns.

      Preflop: I think the 3b is reasonable for thin value though you should be sizing it slightly smaller since he did raise to 5bb. I'll make it $3 here.

      Interesting. I never do c/r instead of cbets. So as I understand the idea is if he does not fold to cbet, he still might fold to c/r.

      yes. also, you allow villain to put in more dead money with weak hands before taking down the pot. it is also easier to play with a c/r with A:dX so you can shove diamond Turns and end your decision there. Another effect of having a CR range is that it discourages villain from betting all the time when you check which is great if you get a free Turn card with your AK type of hands.
