      12/9/5.6/1.6/43 (VPIP/PFR/3B/AF/WTSD) after ~700 hands

      All A:hX is out of V's range, Q:hJ, K:hQ are also out. It leaves a few number of FD's. Can V be raising with AJ/AT? I really doubt it because of his low AF and high WTSD. For sure he is raising sets and even if he raising 5:h6 or some random FD's (what doesn't have a high probability because of his AF) so... I can't call his bet. It might looks like a weak-tight fold but I think it's a good one.

      If he has 5.6% 3-bet he woudl very likely 3-bet with AK and I doubt he is calling pf A4/A3, so that leaves 44/33 and likely a lot of flushdraws that he is raising on the flop, even if he doesn´t raise for value AK/AQ, so instead of folding I´d likely shove for value

      Hello slimy3,

      While it's rush then I don't think that such an opponent would raise there very often with flushdraws or either AJ, AT type of hands. Weaker aces he usually would just Call and not play that aggressively, those kind of opponents are just doing that and as well rather playing passively with their draws. 1,5 is just too small to expect them to do that kind of raise there with draw and as well the raise seems to be some kind of way strong. Looks like he is planning to go broke anyways there and I rather say that I like your Bet/Fold there unless you as well give the stats on him like raise CBet and etc but while he seems to be rather straight forward player I am as well folding.

      Best regards.
