      can I defend the blind with suited connector against this aggressive guy?
      or shouldn't I steal with the draw type of hands in the first place ?

      Hi Daisuke,

      Is this the same guy as in the KQ hand (where we 4-bet bluff)?

      If so we know that he 3-bet KJ which means he will most likely 3-bet all hands that dominate ours so calling may not be as good. We've also seen that he doesn't like folding (from that hand) so we lose some of the value of our hand because we can't bluff as often.

      And as we see here he is willing to call SUPER light which means he not fold (m)any better hand either.
