Random hand: 3/6, K8o in the BB
So to add more stuff for discussion to this forum, I decided to try something. I opened PokerTracker, and sorted all my 3/6 hands for "went to showdown" in the filter section. Then I scrolled down a little bit to something that may be questionable, randomly clicked the list of hand-histories, and got this:

As this was two months ago, I don't have a fresh memory of what my reads at the time were, but PT tells
Villain is 18/20/2.4 over 211 hands. I don't have any notes on him, which is kinda strange given that I have notes on most players that I've played more than 100 hands on, but this is what I have.
I usually check-raise the flop in these situations, but for some reason I decided not to here. It might be because of some recent hand he and I had played in a similar situation and I was mixing it up. Or I wasn't paying attention. Or maybe I was feeling ultra-daring and wanted to check-raise the turn?
How thin is the preflop call against an aggressive player at a 5-handed table? I think it's pretty thin, but not horrible, myself. Did I botch the hand completely by not checkraising? Should I lead the turn with my K-high flush draw as a semi-bluff? Check-raise the river? Any other fun ideas?
