      my opponent here is 47/13/5.5 over 32 hands, not much of a sample, but he was really aggressive whenever given the opportunity.

      Should I have played bet/fold on the turn? Being so aggressive the line my opponent took doesn't seem too strong, unless he was on a 4x fd.

      About the flop call - BU is rather passive, I don't see him raising the flop without a monster, and even though I'm in a bad position, if he called he would give me great odds to chase FD, if he folded (like he did) he would leave me in position with a decent FD+pair hand

      Hard to say, part of the reason for checking back the turn is to induce more bluffs from a very aggressive opponent. Bet/check/bet line are often "i bluff! damn he called, he has something probably, i check. oh he checked back, so he has nothing! i bluff!" lines from people who just can't help but bluff once shown weakness. If you have any reason to believe he's simply bet again on the turn with Kx hands, go ahead and call the river.

      Hope it helps.
