      - aggro, barrel-happy, capable of spewy moves
      - 125bb deep, AhQh on KhT4-6h cbet/call 3way flop w GS+backdoorFD, chRAI turn w combodraw
      - squeezes KQs, on KTxr-x cbet flop, push turn
      - 3bets SB v BU, on Axxs-x cbet flop, barrel/folds turn
      - IP calls squeeze w 99, checks down on Qxxr-J-x
      - MP v BU calls 3bet w KJs, chR/broke on Kxx flop

      Too weak fold against him, and just push turn?
      Or checkbehind turn, call/bet river?

      I can not say that I like the open preflop.
      This Guy alone is going to defend 12+% against you and he is likely to slowplay a bunge of hands that have you beat pre.

      Flop cbet standard, Turn Cbet bigger, since you never bluff here anyway and it is obvious, you might as well bet according to the strength of your range. 3$ sounds about right.
      He probably raises many combo draws on the Flop and isn't likely to bluff, given your strength. He also won't have worse Jacks.

      Still here is one range assumption:

      TT-77, AJs, KJs, QJs, T9s, 98s, AJo

      Against this you still have the upper hand and should call.
      The river will be the tricky spot...

      I would snap call almost any river, since I think that he thinks, you would jam strong hands on the turn, and I do not give him many flushes.
      A flush river still is tricky. Either he thinks your range holds a lot of flush draws and doesn't bluff it, or he thinks that you might have a hand like AA and does bluff it. Good thing you have played 2766 hands with him...

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Bet the turn bigger and protect your hand, no need to do such small Bets near 1/2 pot size. If he calls you he calls also bigger one. But otherwise as played I would also rather leave the pot alone, I can't see many hands what we have beat which float the flop, just very few combos of FDs and that's pretty much it. Doubt that the guy floats with just total crap on such a flop and then turns it into bluff on the turn, nor of course no PP or weaker pair does that whilst he just would pick a way ahead/behind more often.

      Best Regards.
