      Villain had an AF of 12 in 47 hands, I thought a lot before i decided to push him on the turn because i was afraid of the set. It's calling turn and reevaluate river an option here?

      Preflop: OK

      Flop: OK

      Turn: Hmm. On one hand I want him to keep bluffing, and on the other I don't want him to hit a flush on the river. So I would probably take the middle way and only raise to about $5, hoping to get a call and then a river bluff from him (we're intending to go broke on any river then, even a :diamond:)
      It's a bit of a weird play but it's specifically designed for this opponent :tongue:

      I think pushing is good too though, it's probably what I would've done while playing aswell.

      Sorry for the vague-ish answer, but against some opponents you really need to see the stats and his play for yourself to know how to play against him :) I think I'd like a small turn-raise though, considering how he played on the flop - turn.

      I like your push, he only has to call $6.20 to recieve $20.35 which is 30% pot odds.

      If he has FD + an OC he has like 25% odds so shove is only option imo.
