Background on Villain: advanced player normally plays at higher stakes. Bullies the $1/$2 tables post flop by raising and/or reraising with literally any 2 cards, and it generally works, getting players to fold to his aggression.And then he proudly shows his bluffs.
My decision to fold was based on being so deep - not wanting to stack off even if I had top pair, let alone the 2nd pair I actually had. (SPR on flop approx 6)
So my specific questions are: 1. Was c betting against this villain correct? 2. Was folding against the flop reraise correct? 3. With this type of villain, could I have made an exploitative adjustment and called the flop reraise and then check/call down to river (assuming normal bet sizes to call)? Or, does it go back to, 'it's ok to fold the winning hand some of the time- it's the long term that matters'.
