      This hand is obvious, here the question is, with what range i should raise this opponent?

      Here i think the 3B is clear because we are OOP and MP2 can call with alot of weaker hands. Should i cbet this flop or just check against this passive villain?

      1) playing oop is always more difficult, so I´d prefer 3-betting that spot AJs for value
      2) Would prefer 3-bet and then playing for stacks if he wants. 3-betting AK would allow me to 3-bet bluff ip also with wider range, including maybe some hands, liek KJs, A5s and so on.
      3) fine
      4) This hand is obvious, here the question is, with what range i should raise this opponent?
      - I´d go TT+, AJ+, KQ and sometimes mix up some bluff hands, like T7s, 86s, Q7s- basically hands that I don´t think I can´t call, but since I have pf quite big fold equity and I should mix up my 3-bet value hands I think we can also sometimes profitable 3-bet bluff to defend our bb
      5)Here i think the 3B is clear because we are OOP and MP2 can call with alot of weaker hands. Should i cbet this flop or just check against this passive villain?
      - makes you hand easier to play. If I check I´d c/c at least once
