      Villain: 23/20/1.9 on 273h sample. With a read, that likes to open suited connectors from EP and MP. Call without considering the odds and push almost any river.

      Now here i was afraid that i should have cbet on the flop, although maybe the reads messed my mind a bit, because i have no info about him flating OOP. The valuebet on the river could be smaller to get some Qx to call it, but it worked fine in this situation.

      You can't ever take such a line unless you have some super special reads which you don't have(opening suited connectors doesn't help anything because he cold calls and they are always part of his range).

      I'd take such a line ONLY IF it happens that villian is super aggressive if checked to him and likes to bluff A LOT,and we have a history between us.Otherwise if you check the flop you should be raising the turn to look like a bluffy mode on,calling is only an option if you are SUPER SURE about his cold calling range and some sort of this in which i'm sure you aren't.In such a play of the hand you lose so MUCH value,it works in such a case because he probably showed up with some random Kx,Qx even maybe Ax hand which would have folded to shown strength but you lose much much more if he has 2pairs/TPTK/set or whatever that you beat.

      I also like betting flop and then going 3 streets of value unless board gets relaly ugly
      once you check back flop I also like raising turn, since if they have there Kx hand they would likely b/c and you can bet more on the river than just 2.4$
