      BU 29/19/4.0/8.7/54/53hands
      When someone calls twice preflop, is it safe to assume their range is mostly PP?
      If that's the case here, I didn't see any value cbetting flop.But trying to get value on the later two streets if he checks behind.

      If that's my plan though i guess i should have just called turn, then c/called river.

      I shoved in case he checks back river with weaker aces if they're in his range, hoping he might call turn with them.

      BTN: $27.16 (108.6 bb)
      SB: $36.32 (145.3 bb)
      Hero (BB): $36.62 (146.5 bb)
      UTG: $25.70 (102.8 bb)
      MP: $19.65 (78.6 bb)
      CO: $27.45 (109.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A Q
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.50, BTN calls $0.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $2.80, CO folds, BTN calls $2.30

      Flop: ($6.20) 8 8 A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.25, Hero calls $4.25

      Turn: ($14.70) 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $9.50, Hero raises to $29.57 and is all-in, BTN folds

      Results:
      $33.70 pot ($1.52 rake)
      Final Board: 8 8 A 4
      BTN mucked and lost (-$16.55 net)
      Hero mucked A Q and won $32.18 ($15.63 net)

      he's not going to stab three streets unless you somehow make him believe that you're weak.

      that said, i'm not sure what's the optimal course of action :P

      Yes it's a bit difficult to decide what is the best line.
      I probably cbet because if he knowns we play this way with AQ/AK then he can easily exploit us... We cbet with air and ch/c with good hands...

      I'm going for halfpot cbet and hope e floats some times (maybe I cbet even a bit smaller to induce). Then ch/c turn.

      I like the idea of turning your hand into a bluffcatcher because your perceived range is going to be big PP and he seems aggro. But I dont like the turn X/R becuase your hand looks way to strong that he calls with weaker Ax unless you think saw him being loose enough to call

      I'll lead on this flop because if you often checkback with TPGK,
      it may decay your CB credit.
      And on turn you could get extra barrel from him, but
      is it same to do bet flop and turn c/r for his float?

      Hello dannywratten,

      Seems to be fine, we are getting a lot more value from him if he so aggressive guy by Check/calling, nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      Agree turning it into a bluffcatcher is nice when oppo is aggro.
      You also think ch/rai turn is fine? I'd just ch/c again.

      He isn't going to bluff the river and he will just Check behind his weak Ax hands. So what's the purpose of it?

      Hehe, and what would the opponent think of it. Why would you ever want to bluff with Check/Call 2x being PFA and then donk the river? :P I'd say he is very likely to fold it.

      But if we shove the river time to time if the board is drawy we might get called from those hands or either he may put us on some kind of pure-bluff hand as KK which decided to turn his hand into bluff.

      If I go for Check/Call on the turn then I'd also Check/Call the river but as said I like the line which hero took.
