      villain is guilty of using strange betsizes consistently. That being said, he is supernova on P*.

      I wish I had bet the turn. I wanted to induce a bluff, but not the kind of bluff I can't call. His line screamed Ax where x>j to me.

      Hi,

      I'd 3-bet preflop in position. It's way easier to play.
      As played:
      When you call preflop and both players, including preflopaggressor check to you, I'd bet at least 4,75-5,25$ to see where I stand exactly. Because your bet looks very weak.
      I'd also fold to this huge overbet, you only have a bluff catcher I guess.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I´d played the same way that Anin suggested. Only at some times I´d call river since his line doesn´t make a lot of sense
