      Villain 14/7/2.0 on 46h big sample size

      The raise was a pure steal because of his FoldtoSteal stat 86 and the nitty stats overall. The only thing that i doubt here is the cbet...Afterwards i am shutting out, whatever comes out.

      Ur preflop raise was a little bit small for a steal. 3.5xBB will be better against a nit and if villain calls u also have more information.

      Flop cbet size was a little bit large. 1/2 - 2/3 pot should be enough to drive villain out if villain's a nit and had air.

      I would probably try 2 or even 3 barrells in this situation. After the flop bet got called, I would fire another big barrell on the turn. I prefer to put a nit on a test instead of giving away a pot like this :P

      Just a personal preference and please correct me if you think this line is way off in this situation.

      I guess if he is a complete nit, then the turn and river could be pretty scary for shis TP. But the fact, that made me to shut down here was the smallish sample size...

      I prefer also 3xbb pf and better keep your bet sizes the same
      If you make 2x with garbage and 4x with aces anyone can understand that quite quickly and starting abusing you
      I think taking once stab and then shutting down is fine
      I´d make it 1/2 potsize.

      I think preflop is fine considering it's a pure steal and villain is supposedly nitty. So when he folds it doesn't matter, but if you make it bigger and he calls here is what will happen:

      1/ you'll be in a bigger pot out of position
      2/ with a crappy hand
      3/ up against the calling range of a nit, meaning it's way stronger than J7s.

      So you're crushed equity-wise as well as position-wise, which is a recipe for disaster.

      On the flop I agree, you don't need to bet so big to make him fold when he has less than Kx / draws, so you can lose less money against hands that won't fold if you simply make it smaller.

      I wouldn't really barrel with no outs whatsoever against a guy who is likely capable of just calling with stuff like AQ/AJ preflop and won't fold them BBvsSB.

      Easy fold on the river, we have nothing and he could have slowplayed a flush on the turn, otherwise he's just valuebetting Ax. If you think he'd bet all flushes on the turn you could think about raising the river, but your line looks like nothing at all so you'd be purely relying on him playing weak to make him fold there.

      Hope it helps.
