      Villain is 39/12 with 2.8AF on 54 hands. When this hand happened Villain had played 3 hands and already raised cbet 2/3 times. his Checkraise flop was 1/1.

      I saw this and briefly thought "Oh he might be bluffy and can easily try to rep flopped set by CheckRaising I should probably call a checkraise flop and fold to a turnbet"

      In short I'm not entirely sure what to do, I was actually thinking of checking back flop to let him bet turn and not put myself in such a tricky spot if he did indeed C/R when I had so little information on him. If my inkling is right and he's bluffy then its unlikely he's just only bluffing flop so pot management might actually be the way forwards.

      On the other hand I could just put more Top-Pair like hands and Draw hands in his range and shove flop but I feel slightly uncomfortable doing that with such a small amount of information.

      I´d play there for stacks and best way to do is just shove and expect to get called by worse hands
      hard him to flop set every time when he c/c pf.
      If you b/c flop then call his shove
      You should be ahead most of the times, since draws missed (except j9)
