      Villian is 15/12/3.8 after 36k hands (VPIP/PFR/AF)

      Reads I had till that hand:
      cold 4b me as a bluff as BB/give up postflop
      squezz me light?
      min 5b as BB vs my EP 4b
      5b vs my UTg 4b as MP/fold to ship
      minr my cbet 2.5x on A26r

      So he already did line like that once but I folded,thought that T is really ok for my hand and R is just naother blank. Was suprised by his hand on showdown. Made a note.
      thought about the hand? Is this ok played?

      What's his flatting range in SB? I mean, in order to decide better I need to know what he 3bets at least. Does he have A2s, A3s in his preflop range? He might defend A3o and A2o as well (yes, some people do that, it would not be my default assumption but I've seen regs show up with that).

      What's his AFq? I mean, after 36k hands with a guy I expect to know him inside/out. If you will continue to play him a lot I think calling down AQ here is fine. It's probably the best bluffcatcher you can have but I'm not too happy about it. When you have 36k hands do the right thing and let others pay for knowing what to do here. You probably play him daily, research his showdowns and learn his ranges from when others called him down so you know what to do. Here it's a call for me because EV wise it's close IMO anyway so I make up for it from learning his range.
