      Villain is weak loose agro player, which I expect to 3bet me with all kind of suited connectors and broadway, as well 1, 2 gapers, and I have alot of fold equity against him.After he calls I gave him a relativley normal range for such a player-TT+,AJ+.I expect him to donk the turn with his entire calling range preflop.The question is what to do on the river.I was thinking of 3 options there:
      1)I valuebet small, to get called by TT,QQ,KK(and his line looks alot like QQ)
      2)I shove the river-I expect him to fold 100% with this line-exept JJ, but I think he will bet the river with that hand-I have FE vs AJ+ that beats me.
      3)I check-I have SD Value.

      Hello LSFC4ever,

      Preflop: If you know that he is 3betting that much then I wont even open-raise with such hand from CO, I'd just fold it. As played I guess I still don't like the 4bet there unless we really know him better. Stats and so on would be useful here.

      As played
      Postflop: Any Ax beats us, although I don't really think that he would play his TPs like that, he would at least value-bet it at river. So therefore you can bet on river like $5, although Checking behind and taking a look at his hand is as well considerable. Oh and I like the Check behind on flop to induce bluffs. :)

      Best regards.
