      Again, another tilt stack. Maybe I should just open muck AJs in early position? I flop GS + FD so I put out a strong C-bet and he flats. Turn card give me OESD + FD + 1 overcard to the board. Am I really supposed to Check fold here? or Bet fold?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Against his stack you should do fine, I would also consider 2barreling against and and likely even go broke. Opening from AJs is also close, depending on how loose the tables are. Sometimes he might have a draw as well.

      Best regards.
