      Hi!

      Villain is 50/17/0.9 over 40hands.

      Here I am wondering if stackoff on flop is a good idea or reraise/fold is better? I mean he shows very low aggression(but questionable cuz of small samplesize) so donk overbet is what in this spot?
      Should I make the reraise smaller if I would be folding to shove?

      Thanks for your help!

      I am inclined to call flop, for pot control. Opp is already charging himself dearly for a straight draw, but it seems unlikely. More likely to be a bluff. Reraising will snap off any bluffs. So calling is better. B/f turn, if checked to u.

      basically overbets are nuts or bluffs.
      board is a littlebit drawy but I think I like call a little more and then deciding if I want to shove on blank turn card
      You can raise flop and play for stacks, but then you force out all bluffs and often get all-in against two pair+ or maybe smt like JT
