      Preflop I flat to keep his range wide. Better to 3b for value?
      Postflop I get completely lost. I didn't raise flop because no better hand will fold. But, looking at his stack and his aggression, better just to try to get it in here with my TPGK? Turn is a horrible card for me but I stupidly couldn't fold against his betsizing.

      FLOP
      c/r for value

      TURN&River

      I'd call him down.

      Hi,

      you should definitely 3-bet him for value, since you should have best hand and you can easily play for stacks if you hit your tp. I think c/r flop would be better option than just c/c him down. Since every draw got there and I don´t think he would bluff too often I would rather fold river. Ofcourse you can call him down to get info and you should be ahead at some percentages

      best regards,

      What if he calls, and you don't hit TP?
      Depends on the flop, but what is your overall strategy if you don't hit?

      Hi,

      I would c-bet most boards and especially on dry boards, like 269 or 366+ Axx boards. Where board is drawy and you don´t have even no backdoor draws, like 5d6d8d or even 5d7d8s you can take c/f line. Since his pf range is generally quite wide I think you can profitable c-bet most boards and if he calls then cosnider barreling on scare cards and if you hit card that gives you more equity. For example you c-bet on 943 and turn is J then you should continue aggression since you picked up more equity and J is also overcard for his pp-s

      best regards,
