      I can't decide whether call or fold is better on the turn, he could have weaker aces which he may not so strong, also i hold Ac.

      Hi Dracsharp,

      I think preflop is clearly an isolation raise. We see that he plays really weakly on the Flop (fold 70% to cbets) so we can just cbet on most boards and expect to win really often. I think A9 also fares fairly well against his CO limping range.

      And I don't like taking checking lines on the Flop unless you have a good idea on how many streets to call down. If not i just prefer to bet myself and make hand reading easier.

      For example if I did bet this flop i could bet F c/c T and then maybe c/c R or c/f R. The Turned T is somewhat bad for us, but he still has a ton of flush draws and gutshots.

      All his other stats also indicate that he probably bluffs the Flop and Turn really often. I won't be surprised to see him barrel through on the River with many of his bluffs.
