      It's hard to believe this players ever find a hand but they do and we have to think about it.

      Preflop and flop play are fine.

      Turn: I don't like it. I understand you want to get value from him but despite his range being very wide I wouldn't play for stack. With that thought in mind I would bet smaller - $1,50. Folding to his reraise is really tough against him but we have to think what can we beat here? Only AT and some underpairs. I would fold here because I know my AJ is the most loosing hand and even fishes usually have AQ against me.

      Change tables and find some table where you have position on him (or like him players). GL!

      Hello Saruniks,

      The problem with calling stations is that they are rather passive with TP type of hand postflop and rather very aggressive with stronger hands. Therefore I'd rather prefer Bet/Fold on turn than go broke unless I know him better.

      Best regards.
