      Villain: 16/8/162 hands
      Agrr factor 5.0
      cbetting flop 100%, turn 67% and flop 100%

      Should I give up my 2 pair right on the start. AQ is within his range, he's not playing KJ, K10. He could have KK, JJ, 1010.
      But here is the thing he is betting pot sizes. And looking at his stats he's not going to bet pot sizes with a made hand.

      Hello RasTweet,

      Well, kinda close in this spot here. But with his overall playstyle I wouldn't be surprised even to see KQ/AK/AA or something similar here. So I guess I'd just Check/Raise it right on flop to avoid any horrible cards for us and get it in. No point to Check/Call like this anyways while you could protect your hand.

      Best Regards.
