      Hi 13BlackCats ,

      Ok, lets do a switcharoo.

      A switcharoo is when you pretend to be the opponent.

      "Hi Pleno1,

      I played a hand against a really good aggressive opponent last night. He was playign 22/19 and was aggressive in 3bet pots.

      I opened AJ, he 3bet and I called as I think I dominate some Ax hands that he would choose to 3bet bluff with.

      I call flop and turn on j248.

      The river was a King and he went all in, what do you think I should do"

      "Hey 13blackcats,

      Pretty tough spot. On the river when he goes all in he has a really tight range. He is most likely shoving KJ, AA, AK but even with KQ I see these guys making really nitty check backs and I definitely think he doesn't go the other way and value jams QQ. I think if we call down we should call the river too as his value range is narrow"

      Does this answer the question ;)

      The problem here is that you give your opponent so much free info cause if you check back this river and bluff all busted draws on the river, then you are super super polarized what is never a good spot to be in.
