      Hi Gregor,

      I'd play it similarly to you. I like the big preflop 3-bet for value but villain is a big fish so he will have a lot of Ax hands.

      However on the flop we still have the best hand often and can bet for value/protection and on top of it if we check we really don't know what to do.

      I vote for check/Call ones :) Who's with me? :D . I think betting ones is too thin and because of his wide range we can def x/c ones profitably

      Both bf and cc are fine, i like checking way more ip.
      Oop i like checking too vs a fish cos they play really bad against checks (instead of correctly assigning u to a range of kk qq and weak AX )
