      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with A :spade: 9 :diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 4 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.25) A :diamond: K :spade: Q :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.65) K :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, UTG raises to $0.90, Hero folds

      Knowing that my opponent is super aggressive postflop, what is the best approach vs him with this hand in general?
      Can I:
      a) raise it for value preflop and bluffcatch with a hit postflop until he adapts?
      b) check it behind preflop and bluffcatch in an unraised pot?

      Any other alternatives? Which is better, etc.?

      Also: how do I play my monsters postflop? Can I still try and induce vs him and play passively regardless of whether or not I have positon or initiative? And maybe sometimes check/raise small when OOP on either the turn or river to induce even a reraise, or raise small on the turn or river when IP, once again to induce further raises?

      Hi Avatars91,

      I think you should assume you know so much about how he plays after only 50 hands. His aggression can easily drop as sample size increases, even though he looks like a baby maniac.

      a) I'd raise it preflop and go broke with TP postflop :D . I think he is likely going to raise A high flops and he is not having strong Ax in his range.

      b) neah- don't like it, our hand is quite strong against his limping range.

      As for your other questions, since his raise flop cbet is 4/4 I'd always cbet into him and then switch to x/c mode when he raises. If he does not raise I'd put him on some showdown hand and keep betting myself.
