      Hello gonepoker,

      Well, actually I doubt that I would play it any differently. He definitely has a lot of Ax hands in his barreling range and the river card ain't the best for us. :( His range mostly will even consist of Ax hands and therefore I'd also Check/Fold the river.

      One option which I might sometimes use is I'd even Check/Raise the turn to avoid coming any overcards on turn which will be hard for us to Call while being OOP. Since that kind of opponent is very likely to do that. The Check/Raise doesn't even have to be very big, ~$5 should do the job. Would Call us almost the same as Check/Calling the flop & turn although we gain protection and maybe even free showdown. Plus it's very likely that if we get called we are against made hands mostly.

      Best regards.
