      Villain is 11/9/2.0 steal from sb 48%/ river agg frq 40% / wts 29%

      In this hand I really wasn`t sure where I stand. His line bet flop, ch/r turn, bet river is just so strong but than his river agg frq got me thinking.
      If I call his river bet I have a feeling I am only ahead of his bluffs. There is KJ, KQ, AK that crush me especially with :diamond: combo. I just can`t figure out if his ch/r on turn is sign of strenght or weakness. When does a nit get tricky?
      Any sugestion?

      WIth 48% steal from SB you can easily 3B preflop.
      I would check behind on the turn.

      I'd be 3betting more or less ATC against ~50% steal range from sb. KTs is ok to call though, I'd call cbet, and bet/fold turn.

      If you feel villain is tricky in these spots, you could also check behind on turn and call any non diamond river. On all diamonds on river I'd turn my hand into a bluff and either overbet when checked to or raise smallish against his bet.

      11/9 isn´t really going to c/r turn with his flushdraws and then try to get you off on the river. I think I´d also take b/f line on the turn or if you think he is bullshitting with you then call him down

      b/f turn. no point trying to adpt b/c players at hese limits usually play rather st8firward. if he had air, then he played it well but there is nothing u can do about it.
