      BU was 9/6/4 over 260. FtCB - 67.

      PREFLOP
      All guys behind me were very tight (10/7 or below) so I was stealing lighter.

      FLOP
      It was the end of the session where I was played back a lot and it got through to me.
      I should have made a regular cbet instead of giving up or did it really make sense to check/fold as he is not folding a lot on this flop?

      TURN
      For some reason decided that I could rep a Qx so I made a delayed cbet.

      RIVER
      When he called my turn bet I don't think I will get more value from this guy by betting so I check without a plan.
      When he bets I think I am most often behind and it's unlikely he would bet Ax, right?

      Hello,

      I like raising the A3 here.

      I think that checking the flop here is fine. BU's range is mostly PP consisted so it is hard to take the pot with just one bet here and at the end of the day our main plan preflop was to steal so we don't have to fight for every pot.

      I would not say that betting the turn is a bad thing here as it would be really hard for the nitty player to call us with a hand like 66 for example.

      When he calls this is a little bit odd and I am usually going to check/fold here if I check.
      Just don't really want to go into check/call here as he could easily not bet even Ax.

      Best,
      Plamen
