      Hi Daisuke,

      Any particular reason for just calling preflop? Are we calling because we think he is super tight in 3-bet pots (and he is) and we want to set mine?

      As played we can bet the turn and try to get max value from hands he plays too passively like KK or AK. Checking back would at most get us one street of value from KK which we most likely get on the turn anyway. By betting turn we give ourselves a chance to get 2 streets versus the rare Ax hands. And if he slowplays AA we lose anyway.
