      Preflop: Not sure if I can 3b for value vs this opp, so call to avoid turning my hand into a bluff or ISO myself vs better.

      Flop: I assume villain will c-bet this board frequently, either as a bluff or for value. I think I can get PP's, 2x/5x to fold, don't expect to see TP+ fold here obviously. My plan for the T is to just x/f un-improved. If I hit an A I might just take a pot control line and x/c.

      Although villain isn't the best person to make this play against, I still think that it will work fairly often. Just because he won't have hit this board very often and can only really continue with QX IMO.

      I also think that since I have AX it makes AA and AQ less likely. Another problem with this bluff is that I only really rep sets since I would not x/rai QX on this board (although villain might not think this)

      Hello muel294,

      Preflop: Don't you think his 4bb open from BTN indicates rather strength? :)
      Postflop: Depends again what's his CB etc, according to that we can base our actions. If he CBs a lot then of course we could consider doing that but we are representing a very narrow range whilst Qx most likely you would just Check/Call it.

      Best Regards.
