      I see myself ahead with A-high vs that aggressive player. Notice that he never calls or limps preflop, he either 3bets or openraises. Don't tell me he is certainly ahead. He 3bets so many frickin times, A-high surely ahead enough of times.

      Hello,

      If he really is aggressive, it's possible that your A-hi would be ahead, but there's actually so much that hits him on the way to the river. If he 3-bets hands like 67s etc. he has at least pairs, and if he can bet 3 streets with small pp's you will lose to them, too. If I were you, I'd fold on turn as we don't have that much outs to improve our hand anymore.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: You can't take into account the 3bet here cause he is rather doing it against UTG/MP range, so which means clearly 3bet stat is wrong. Especially for just 43 hands. Therefore going broke is kind of overplayed here unless we assume he is huge maniac.

      As played
      Postflop: Good example why should be calling preflop whilst you will be major of the time just wasting your money here. :) Calling down with just Ace high like a "station". :( Should have rather folded on the flop whilst his CB is already strong there and a lot of Kx hands in his 3betting range.

      Best Regards.

      Preflop: he's a huge maniac. 42 hands is enough to see that. I doubt that after 1000 hands I'm going to see a normal TAG. I called because I'm going to be IP. BUT you are perfectly right, I should check the position at the 3bet stat, maybe I'm going to find some pattern.

      Postflop: He has nearly everything in his 3betting range. I might be too result oriented. If we assume he 3barrels his whole 3betting range (which I'm pretty sure), we are still favorite on the river. There is no way I'm ever folding A-high against this person.
