      Should I have re-raised / pushed the action harder?

      Always tricky when you hit so big, you know its less likely your opponent will have hit too big as you take some of the ways they can hit.

      Hi Philfox,

      Preflop: I'm not a huge fan of the call preflop. Call 20 does not allow us to set mine here plus we are OOP so we won't be able to claim (m)any pots when we don't hit.

      So I would fold preflop.

      As played we could ck/raise the flop to maximize value vs TT+. If he is aggro we can call to let him bluff.

      His 3 bet percentage was around 20% overall over a few hundred hands, SB vs BB it would be almost any remotely playable hand.

      I would normally fold, but not against such an aggressive opponent.

      His range in my eyes was around 30-40% of all possible hands - My plan was actually to 4-bet, a better idea than playing such an unplayable hand OOP postflop?
