      Your line is most of the time the goood line. He is very loose preflop, and here most probably has a K, with a worse kicker than yours, that for some reasons, in my experience, this kind of players min rr.

      Of chorse sometimes you might run into 2 pair or sets, but mostly you are ahead!

      What I don't like is the fact that you put him all-in. He is pretty aggr and you could let him bluff if he has notheing or miss value bet a K with a bad kicker! If he has a K he will stack off anyway.

      Hello fizgigace,

      Well, as you may have realized the problem here is that the guy has been winning most of the showdowns so far. So that's what we should ask here if he is capable of playing TPs like this? But of course if we expect that then there is no way we can fold against his wide preflop range.

      Best Regards.
