      Hi, feverfew.

      I'll ask Veriz for an evaluation on this one as I think it's a close spot (based on your reads). My point of view is:

      1) position is paramount in poker. If there is a player like that immediately to your left, best thing to do at these limits is leave the table.

      2) on that specific flop I'm bet/folding our hand. Yes, he will bluff me often. But I don't think we will profitably drag our hand until showdown - we still have two more streets to play out of position and stacks are getting in. I don't want to put my whole stack in (and we're even 120BB deep) with top pair 3rd kicker on a draw heavy board (where even there are many draws with good equity against us; we're basically flipping with A :heart: x :heart: etc.

      Hello feverfew,

      There is no point to Bet/Call the flop while you even are OOP. So therefore you should decide what to do right on the flop -> and my option would be pretty easy and standard towards just Bet/Folding here. Way too dangerous board to continue.

      Best Regards.
