      Hey veriz,

      19/14/285h reg. 7.1% 3bet.
      Agg%: 29/33/13
      w$sd: 43
      raisecbet: 1/8

      How can I give him credit for a big hand there? Can't he easily do this with FD? +I block already Jx...

      If we have AJ in his shoes, do we raise the flop? Why?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Why not to raise the flop with KJ/AJ or whatsoever. We need to protect. :) Your UTG range will also contain a lot of PPs which will pay us. Plus also protects from FD.

      So therefore I might even leave my hand alone on the turn while we can never be sure if the guy would have that many bluffs/draw type of hands in his range. Seems to be pretty passive guy.

      If we Call the turn then not much to comment, we went for bluff-catch or hope to see something like K:sQ/A:sK. Although not sure if such a guy would even Bet the river for value anymore while he doesn't get called from a lot worse.

      Best Regards.
