      I find these are really tough spots I'm in. His range to 3bet an utg range is very tight. Or he could be doing this polarised if he knows this but I don't have that info about him. I surely can't fold my QQ's here but it's almost never a good spot unless I flop a set. I'm also looking very strong if I 4bet here so most of the time I think I'm up against KK+ if he shoves. So that's the reason I call preflop. Flop is standard call. If he checks the turn I don't put him on KK+, he could be betting river with random bluffs or even value hands (JJ/TT) that I beat. I think this is also standard. Is this hand played well? Thanks.

      I think you can´t raise/fold pf, since he sometimes would show you JJ and often AK. I think calling flop and then folding to big turn bet should be fine option. Since he checks turn I think he would c/c worse hands, as JJ/TT and you should bet to protect against AK, so I would choose b/f line to 1$ and take my free showdown. Since he may always turn his AK into bluff or bet JJ/TT I don´t think you can fold river

      best regards,
