      Is it OK to call his limp/raise preflop with intention to shove to his cbet on any flop (I believe he will cbet any flop)?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Yep, should be fine and if the flop would be even safer you might as well sometimes just Call and let him continue his bets. Otherwise nice hand! But as well he might be even interested of shipping it preflop so I think you might as well try to get it in preflop to get value. He will very likely have there QQ, KK or something similar when he limp/raises. Just curious what did he have? :f_biggrin:

      Best regards.

      That hurts, but just try not let you motivate from such beats. :( They just happen, in long run you earn a lot more from him than he earns from you. Good luck for him to playing profitable and beating the limits but while you at least will do that. :)
