Vilain is a very good player, playing up to NL1000 and tourneys as well. He's running 25/21/3.3, CB 75%.
I have played more than 3K hands with him but incredibly enough I have no notes on him. He's just very solid and very balanced, and must be very good at finding the best bluff spots, as I've never seen him spew off a buy-in for instance.
I know he likes not to bomb the pot with air and low / medium equity holdings, prefers to go to showdown when in position. He surely considers me as an agressive LAG, somewhat crazy and maybe spewy (not against him though, as I feel he's not trying too much to play back => he prefers to fold early and tighten up preflop, only to bluff with the right frequency).
Basically he's very good and I don't really see how to exploit him.
On this hand, I could definitely 3bet 4 value on this spot, but we don't have the dynamic to stack off pre I feel ; also I want to have strong hands like this in my calling range for him to make postflop mistakes ; at last, SB is a fish and BB can squeeze light (and I know his tendancies quite well).
Anyway, I raise on the flop ; I feel it's a good spot as I cannot rep many hands.
On the turn, I'm pretty lost. He's not putting me allin, but it's almost the same as his raises is definitely committing.
As I've said, I don't think he's playing back that much, but I don't rep much, he doesn't too much either, why doesn't he let me barrel, etc.
NB: he always opens 2.5x PF.
