      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      UTG: $57.73 (115.5 bb)
      MP: $14.25 (28.5 bb)
      CO: $112.02 (224 bb)
      BTN: $44 (88 bb)
      SB: $63.78 (127.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A Q
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, BTN calls $1.50, SB calls $1.25, Hero raises to $7.50, 2 folds, SB calls $6

      Flop: ($18) 2 5 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $8.50, SB calls $8.50

      Turn: ($35) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($35) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $17, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      CO TAG, BTN fish.

      SB played 67/25 after 10 hands, AFq 25.

      Against a reg barreling twice would be a good line I guess, but against him just checkbehind flop, and give up, right?

      I think it's close, I think we do have FE and we still have overcards.

      Hey pcfmcc02

      I think pre flop is too big. Yes we want to squeeze with this hand, no we don't want 4 callers, but if we make it $5.50-$6 then nto everybody will call. Our hand actually has quite a bit of value, when we make it so big, nothing worse calls and nothing worse goes all in, we basically polarize ourselves vs the top end of his range.

      As played post flop, I think he has a pair and is never folding flop, so we either bet flop, shove turn. Or we check abck flop and give up/try to hit a pair/king to represent.

      Doesn't have such a big fish a wider range than just pairs?

      I think a bet is great to:
      - Make him fold equityshares (QJs for example)
      - Secure us a free rivercard
      - Sometimes get value from GS, Ahi with BDFD

      Am I wrong?

      As I mentioned in my previous post, I think due to our big sizing, his range will not be as wide as you imagine. If we made it $5 on the flop then he will likely call wider.

      As played if we cbet it should be around 1/3 of the pot for the reasons you said below.

      Anyway vs normal 3bet sizing 3b > check back

      vs our massive sizing check back > 3bet :)
