      BTN: 18/18/4 after 34 hands

      On the flop I don't bet because his AF is 4 and I hope that he will bet. He can easily fold to my cbet because he is tight.

      Turn: his sample size is not too big, but it looks that he is not such a bad player. What hand such player might be calling if he is good - only strong such as Ak, JJ+. So I am ahead.

      Also assuming he is good - then what hands from this range he is checking behind on the flop? Is he schecking AK or should he try to bluff because I didn't cbet?
      He should mostly bet flop with QQ, KK to protect against straights and aces.

      Oh, btw remembered one more thing - if an agresive player don't bet it is bad sign as if calling station suddenly bets. So he might be slowplaying aces or pocket jacks. But agaisnt this range I am ahead. If we add KK to his slowplaying range on the flop, then I am behind.

      Too many possible situations - so I don't know how would be the best to play this hand. Probably the simplest way would be to bet and go allin on flop - if he has AK,JJ+ then I am ahead.

      So probably while asking you I anwered myself to the question :)

      So probably while asking you I anwered myself to the question- you´re welcome :P
      I think I would generally like betting flop, turn and then shoving river for value
      If you don´t bet then sometimes you´re going to c/f, but also a lot of times it means you have showdown value and c/c and if you c/r then it looks very strong and he may easily fold there Jx
      Once you bet turna nd he raises you can´t really get away. A lot of times he has there straight, but he maybe also play that way KJ or trying to bluff you out so shove is fine
