      Hello jozata,

      I am really curious, what makes you think that he is practically raising every single Qx pair there and a draw? :) I would definitely think otherwise and might even go for Bet/Fold unless I assume the guy really overplays his hands.

      Best Regards.

      Board: 7sThQc
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 57.12% 57.02% 0.09% { KhKc }
      MP3 42.88% 42.79% 0.09% { TT, 77, AQs, KJs, QTs, 98s, AQo }

      Ok, so I left only AQ as Qx and KJs,98s as drawing hands. With this modified range KK is still doing fine. With the small sample that I have 300 hands villain has raised flop 13% (15 cases). So he probably does this with a draw at least some of the time.
      What range would you assign villain here and isn't folding to his raise too weak? How do I adjust to flop raises?

      You can obviously build up a range which you going to have good equity. :) Everyone could do that but if it's going to be true?

      Would you for example raise a Qx there ever? Especially if he is rather passive then why would he need to raise it? Don't you expect him or even you rather play it for example way ahead/behind and just call. Also the board is rather dry I'd say, so you can't even be sure if he raises AQ there whihc means the equity drops dramatically.

      RCB is raise cbet, right ?
      if it's below 15%, it's always a set or 2 pair
      a set is usually 11%, if it's a bit higher, then he also raises his 2 pairs.

      also his calling range includes a lot of PP and broadways.

      out of curiosity, what did he have ?
