villain stats
VPIP/PFR 31/19
F3B 0
AGGR 2.5

i really hate these spots, because i dont know what to do(and they keep coming up).
he checks, i make i cbet(2/3 pot) and villain raises putting half of his stack in!
could he be on a draw?(i block KQ by the way)
how often is he gonna have it? because im tired folding my premium hands
i know TT,JJ,JT,QJ,AJ is in his flatting range, but couldnt he be on a SD or FD?

I think in this spot you have two options, to bet/fold flop or to check back. You took the bet/fold option and I think that's fine. What, after all, do you think his range is? It can include so many JX and its very hard for him to bluff to this size.

Because there is a large gap between his VPIP and PFR I think JX is more likely than it normally would be.

Checking back you have to expect a lot of value to come from being bluffed or villain taking a stab. On this kind of board I don't know how much value there is in that.
