      Villain was aggro with 30+/17 vpip/pfr, 2.7 AF. Initially I didn't want to post the hand, so that's why I don't have full stats, but I'm unsure when it becomes a standard fold. My history with villain was that for some reason he was limping a lot, despite his huge PFR, I had position and isolating him every time. Once he beat my aces by completing a flush on the turn, he played it call, check-minraise, bet.

      So, when does this hand becomes a standard fold? I raised x6 this hand because he was limp/caling all the time and because I was a little angry for beating my aces earlier with suited trash x[. If he wants to see flop he has to pay more, but I have such horrible timing. Fold preflop? Fold on flop?

      Hey Badea,

      This is kind of standard monster line by fish. And considering AJ is rather weak hand I fold preflop to a limp/raise.

      As played, on the flop is a standard bet/fold with TPTK.

      Best regards,
