      Villain: 13/13/inf 42h big sample (3-bet: 12% out of 17 hands)

      Calling his 3-bet pre is easy with his stats. Now i am still not quite sure where i am on the flop, but i asumed that he missed the flop pretty often here. Any sense to show aggresion on later streets?

      Same remark again on the sample size, it's small!

      As played on the turn it depends on two things:

      - whether you think he can c-bet pocket pairs on the flop or not. If he's checking JJ- because of the overcard, the only value there is in betting the turn is to protect your hand against 6-outers. If he's c-betting JJ- by default, he can definitely talk himself into check/calling a smallish turn bet with them, and you can protect against 6-outers again.

      - whether he's weak/tight enough to start check/calling top pairs. If he is, you usually don't want to bother trying to valuebet there, you'll own yourself quite often.

      When you're up against players capable of check/raising the turn it's usually not worth the trouble either, but when in doubt at microstakes against people you have no reason to think are even capable of check/raising AQ+ instead of betting again there, it's perfectly fine to throw out a small valuebet on the turn when checked to. Sometimes he'll check/call and show you JJ but that's fine, it's the only hand he can play check/call with that you beat.

      Hope it helps.
