      I don't use any programs.
      Villain was a fishy TAG. 1st time i saw MR. I didn't know what this means.I assume he maybe do this with SC, PP, Broadway hands so I decided to reraise big because i'm OOP, was pretty aggressive and get more value from decent hands(AJ-AQ, 22-TT). Min 4bet, i assume he will do that with JJ+, AK+, maybe with TT because i was agressive and maybe overplaying his hand.

      Should we shove preflop, we are 152BB deep?

      Flop: check/check, no information.
      Turn: I don't know why i bet here. I think because i wanted to take down pot here (he only folds AK). After MR i assume he will do that with JJ+. 1st i wanted shove but then i thinked better option is calling(maybe fold) so i call!
      River : ???????

      hello AA91EST

      this statement:

      doesn't make much sense with this one:

      if he only folds AK then you are targeting only a narrow combination of hands in his total range.

      im not very experienced with playing deep stacked but i don't think you ever want to go broke here preflop without a really good read. what else would villain want to risk this much with other than something that beats QQ?

      once you call the turn i think you are committing to call the river. if you don't want to play for stacks i think a better option would be to check/call him down and not bet at all. that way he can bet with his bluffs too. i would play it way ahead/way behind and check/call the turn and check/call the river but again i'm not too experienced playing this deep :f_eek:

      edit: moved it to hand evaluation forum where you will get some good feedback :)

      Hello AA91EST,

      Betting the turn is fine, though you should be giving up vs his line there. He very often ends there up with a trap which is rather towards KK/AA.

      Best Regards.
