      Villain is V P:51/PR:17/AFq:54 over 54 hands
      ok Villain is somehow a fish because he plays a lot of hands but he has somehow a good post flop play. he is some kind of a LAG.
      There was a bit of antecedent between us.

      His check on the turn after having raised the flop indicates weakness, that's why I bet the turn.
      Is it fair to put him on a draw here and 3rd barrel?

      I think it is fine
      He has there often draws or hand like 8x that isn´t going to call river bet

      Hi Kaitz,


      Why is my flop and turn (and also river according to you) play fine in this hand but not in this other hand that I also posted blind battle - don't get his play

      where you recommend b/f on the flop and also said "I think you see a lot of times there also Kx that doesn´t really like to fold at any point"

      Can this not apply here as well with Villain having Jx?

      To me these 2 hands are very similar for the following reasons:
      In both cases I am preflop aggressor, have position, the board has 2 suited cards and I am facing a flop minraise.

      Thanks

      The main reason I think is that one hand you have equity to b/c flop and then he doesn´t really show any strength so you can take it away.
      Second hand I think players often do that with kx and doesn´t really fold. Since Kxx boards usually isn´t going to c/r draws that often than J8x
