      I am sorry, i don't know how i can include Elephant Stats (not too interesting at the moment since my database is very small; i started playing with stats some days ago) but i already like the tendencies in my opponents play... in this case for example the button had a vp$ip of 69 (29 hands)...

      I don't like the check on flop, vpip 69 can mean he is a maniac or a calling station so I rather play bet/bet/bet for value and protection. It gets ugly if he doesn't bet and a :diamond: or JQ comes on the turn.

      As played I'd like to bet higher on turn for maximum value against draws, + is easier to shove river with a higher turn bet.

      I think bet/bet/bet is likely better line agains calling stations
      Turn and river are fine

      my feeling was that he liked to bet out when i checked the flop and in a way (maybe stupid to think about in that spot) was to balance my play and check a flop (with the intention to checkraise) so that i get free cards later on when i need them

      i know my stats aren't big, but i had the feeling he used every indication of weakness to bet out... so i wanted to show him, that my checks don't necessarily mean that i am weak

      stupid idea?
