      OK, this guy seems tight but with position on him I would raise him preflop. If he re-raises then I think I fold.

      I think you need to raise on the turn, because of the flush draw and also a 5 would make a straight for any Ax hands.

      On the river I think it's hard to put him on a flush and if im honest I would probably call too unless he bet the pot or something.

      raise/fold flop? You hand needs protection against AQ/KQ type of hands. This is not a way ahead/way behind situation. So I will raise on the flop. And if opponent call raise and check turn I will bet out on turn. As said your hand needs protection all the way and you allow your opponent controlled the pot size OOP.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      That's what happens when people see results. :D They base only on results and make actions based on results. But don't do that! Always check the results after your evaluation.

      About the play well, I wouldn't change much. I mean his 2nd barreling range is towards to some kind of draw and that's the only hand what we beat. Against his PFR I doubt we beat any PPs here. For that given reason raising is pretty close since we would just isolate ourselves against better hands, rather take the passive line and reevaluate it on further streets. Which means I would most likely fold on river while I don't really see what we beat there.

      Best Regards.
