      Over 200 hands villian had a vpip of 6 and pfr of 4. Since he raised i figured i had more than implied odds for calling for set value. Worked out, but not sure how I played it? I was just waiting for him to bet into me. Advice?

      I think check/raising the flop is a good idea since it is likely to have hit him. He's probably not getting away from a good ace yet, and he's definitely not getting away if he has AK. If he has TT/JJ/QQ well he'll probably fold but you weren't likely to get any more action from him anyway on later streets by calling his cbet, because he'll figure he's behind at least to a king.

      I mean, with such a flop it's pretty much an either/or situation. He either loves his hand (and is happy to get his money in) or hates it by now. You also still want to protect against a few potentially unwanted cards like Q,J,T.

      As played you definitely have to bet river. You can't count on him to bet the river when he checks the turn behind.

      Flop: Check/Raise here.
      Turn: Bet for value.
      River: Bet again.

      I would lead flop because he isnt folding a good A. And if hes tight and he doesnt have an A he isnt going to bluff much.

      In this case the K on the turn prob scared him and stopped the action. So try and get it all in on the flop if you can. If he doesnt have an A then you wont win much anyway by slowplaying and it could be disastrous for you.

      Good line here is go c/r flop, lead turn, shove river.
      Once you start c/c they won´t often bet/bet/bety at any street.
