      As played you should definately ship it in instead of flatting his reraise.

      I would also 4bet him larger than $.35 given his stats.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Tough to get it in preflop vs rather unknown guy with being almost 200bb deep. But at the same time it's difficult to play it postflop whilst he could be easily trapping us with strong hands. Therefore rather have to base on your thoughts on the guy and base the play how the guy was playing. If you think he was 3betting like a maniac then might even be 6betting better preflop.

      As played
      Postflop: How many worse hands do you see you calling the flop? Do you think the guy has a lot of Kx hands? Do you see him calling with Jx or draws?

      Best Regards.

      It just seems futile putting fishes on ranges. For example, I would NEVER put AQ in his calling range on the flop, and yet he has it. Calling with a GS, what the hell...

      It's hard to make ranges now, given I know he can call an AI with just a GS on the flop.

      True that but you can still ask those realistic questions to at least get the understanding how much we actually have beat and try that doing in equilab.
