      Hello SnoWonder,

      Damn close spot. While his PFR ain't that huge, might even mean that he ain't 3betting a lot. And most very strong hands like AK+,KK+. Against that kind of range you most likely at the best get a flip. Therefore I might even sometimes fold the hand directly or either way against his PFR Call and reevaluate it on flop and not isolate myself against better hands.

      Best regards.
