      What is his range here? This guy is a pretty standard reg and his squeeze is 11%. I was stealing and isolating a fish all the time so my image is lagish.
      At the time I was thinking like "his range must be wiiiiiiiiiiide, a lot of SC, or just random bluffs, he's never doing this with AK, AQ, AJ. Am I wrong?

      First of all I would fold preflop. Or when I think he is playing back, then I prefer 4bet instead of call. His sqz size is small so that could work. There are 2 problems with call: your hand is weak and will be dominated a lot of time, the fish might call which decrease your chance to take the pot without hitting.

      As played, I think he will have AQ-AK-AJ-AA more times then a random bluff. Actually I would also c/r turn with these hands (or maybe c/c if you are agro/maniac), and c/f everything else. He doesnt really have to protect his TP/set. You wont have straight draw, sometimes you will have flushdraw, but you will also float those and bet turn most the times (or fold to his turn bet). So I think with AA there is more value in checking then betting turn. I think he only loses value against hands like KQ :heart: KJ :heart: which is checking turn and AJ-AQ if you check them on turn.

      With your AT I would choose potcontrol on turn because I dont want to face a c/r + I dont see much value.

      I generally think if you bet turn you should more often b/c than b/f. If you think that player is tricky you can always go pot control, since he would barrel most of the times with draws and you most of the times get c/f by worse hands.

      he's never doing this with AK, AQ, AJ. Am I wrong?
      - some players also mix up sets and two pair hands or strong tp hands to their turn c/rai range so I think you can´t really say he is never going to c/rai with made hands

      Best regards,
