      Happy new year guys,

      As usual, I raise 3bb in steal position. The vallian call me and instant dbet on the Flop. Well, I thought may be he was bluffing because the broad is so dry, if I am Villain I will check/raise with top pair. So, I decided to call and see his action on Turn but he instant shove it. How you play this hand if you are the Hero. Thanks :s_biggrin:

      Hey JHTAN,

      I would just give up on A-high board against such a strong dbet. With given stack sizes you pretty much commit yourself to the pot if you call flop as he will probably bluff again on the turn if he is bluffing, but I don't think he will bluff often enough and your equity on A-high board with PP isn't good enough against his range.

      By the way, checking flop with Ax might seem normal play to you, but leveling yourself when playing against fish just doesn't make much sense, you should just play your equity.

      As played, I fold on the turn as well.

      Happy new year!
