      Call, the board is superdry and you're 200bb+ deep.

      You want to potcontrol vs sets/2p and let him bluff/valuetown himself with TP/JJ/overs+gutter/OESD etc

      Exactly, we rep QQ+ here and there are 2 people left to act after this guy, so he will pretty much never have a bluff.
      Also we're 200BB deep so he can put us in terrible spots - if he continues barreling we will get to the SD about 0% of the time unless we hit an A.
      Additional to that our range is very defined, we will c/c the turn and at this point he can be pretty sure we have an overpair at best so a big riverbet (vs which we fold) is mandatory for him.
      Lastly the board is not dry at all, since we're so deep there are a ton of straightdraws he can have.
      Any 4, 9, J, Q are scarecards besides the cards that pair the board.

      As explained above, his bluffingrange is non-existant.

      Duh, I'm rusty/bad phrasing :tongue:

      But still I guess we'd need to know more about villain to make the decision ...
      Things like "our range is well defined as QQ+" and "he knows he can make us fold by barreling just because of our defined range and the very fact that the board is pretty innocent/dry looking, so he's repping big strength"

      Those things/thought processes and NL25 don't really go hand in hand.

      On the other hand, nobody rly folds strong overpairs @NL25 so that goes to show that bluffs rly should be unlikely here.

      But still, since it's NL25 I would expect to see ppl overplay their medium strength hands on such boards coz they might think "Oh, this board doesn't hit him and I don't want any overcards to come, so I raise for value/protection"

      Seems very weak to me to just muck it right then and there ...
      "Don't play AA deepstacked vs aggro players" ?
