      Hi again BGawli,

      well if i took a look at villain stats it was not an easy fold.

      He isn't folding cBets(11/40), hi raise cBetc(9/43) a lot and so on...

      It is a though decision again....

      I am not far away from calling Flop and shoving turn but folding is not that bad either. You really didn't invest much so this fold doesn't hurt.

      Let's one more time wait on veriz and his pro opinion:)

      I have history with this player and in the past I had very similar hand but his stack was around 50bb... so I decided to shove after this x/r. I had AQo, he had AKo.
      For me in this example we have 2 options:
      - fold
      - ship

      I chose cheaper option and I folded because I have history, also his low AF on the flop and x/r on the flop is just 10%

      Hello BGawli,

      Wouldn't say we have only 2 options. :) Why not Call and keep bluffs in the play? What do you think what kind of hands continue there if we ship? :P We don't even need to protect from much.

      So if I'd continue in those spots then I'd actually flat and let him continue with bluffs. But that's mainly on the reads I had on the opponent, practically going for the safe option without any good reads is fine as well. We can't even be sure that he Check/Raises here with a lot weaker hands or bluffs.

      Best Regards.
