Villain: 56 hands, 19/12/0, AF:1, WTSD:1/3

Pre: Standard

Flop: For change and because it was so dry flop I decided to check. He betted big, he might have weak hand and he tries to make me fold my hand, so I call.

Turn: Again large bet. This is getting bit scary now, but he could do it with worse hand (maybe, AF:1, I am not so sure anymore).

River: Again pot sized bet, I have to fold?

He had 77, AA, A2, AK – at least it felt like that. Just want your opinion; because I did not Cbet, can he have worse hand than mine?

Hi braveslice, I think you have mis-played that hand.
Blind v Blind ranges are pretty wide. And I think cbetting this flop is better than checking because we can get called by worse Ax hands and medium to small PPs, we practically have TPTK if you think about it because AK/AQ would have 3bet preflop.
As played, I call down. We lose to AK(unlikely since they would have 3bet preflop), (unlikely given there are two 2s left in the deck), A7, and 77 and that's a very small portion of their range. We split with all other Ax hands and win against his bluffs that picked up a club draw OTT.

Hmm, yeah, I missed the a) the club draw b) and beating AQ too

But, would you think AF:1 would say he don't bet draws let alone bluff, and also his 3B of zero would indicate he doesn't really 3B. Or did the only 56 hands made these stats unreadable?
