Villain does not like to fold preflop. He's a 32/21. Postflop, he likes to bet pot/pot with any pair, not knowing if he's doing it for value or bluffing. He'll check the river though if you follow him that far. He whacked me hard when I had AK and he bet pot pot with middle pair 83s on an A87 board, then hit trip eights on the river. I got him earlier when he called my 3bet with A9 and then shoved an all spade flop. He had the nine of spades. I had aces (not the ace of spades), so I had to dodge the flush. So we've whacked each other up to this hand.

Turn: ($19.85) (2 players)
HJ checks,

Villain now has 9.06 left in his stack, and of course I want it. He's folding all his junk. He might call with the case ace, but the chances of that are low. I need him to think that the rest of his one pair hands might still be good. The only way to do that is to look weak.
