      Hello.

      Villian is kind of newish reg - 28/22 56% fold to 3b, 4b 28% (18), 38% AFq, flop cb - 78%, cb turn 60% over 500 hands.

      So preflop I was thinking about 3betting but since he is more on the 4bet side than the calling side I decided not to, also he is MP.

      On the flop I guess it is an easy check/call I guess.
      His sizing was strange to me, but after a few hands I noticed that he does it potsize all the time, but by the time the hand was played I had no info.

      I think it is a c/c on the turn too. He might have draws, also weaker Qx hands.

      The river was super bad and I do think it is an easy fold.
      What if the river was a blank like 2 :club: ? I would probably call then.

      Hey,

      Folding pre flop is defintely going to be fine, people think its too nitty, but vs a 3.5x UTG range its not going to be a big problem.

      Remember

      Position + initiative = profit

      We have neither here, nor do we dominate his range.

      We could use it as a 3bet bluff hand :)

      As played I would fold the turn I think, his sizing is reallllly strong and I think its a purely value range of AQ+

      River is a pretty clear fold, if he has AQ+ he beats us, if he was barreling kx too he beatrs us, if he was bareeling draws then he beats us.

      What about AQs - is it a fold too?

      And also what if it was 3bb - would it be any different?

      AQs plays a little bit better and we can raise more boards with back door spades and call more turn barrels when we pick up equity.

      Vs 3x I would still fold AQo because of the playability, but more inclined to call than vs a 3 or 4x.
