      Hey guys!

      vill: 29/10/1,9 after 85 hands

      No to much info, but guess he's fishy (stack size)

      I think he can donk any Ax hands and a lot of Qx hands, even draws like KJ. But when I decide to raise I need to call as well vs his shove? :(

      Problem is that I can call, but then what ott? :(

      SB: $5.55 (55.5 bb)
      MP: $11.09 (110.9 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)

      Hi Ras,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why exactly do you want to raise/call versus someone like him? Can you really expect him to shove worse Ax or other garbage? If so, why? What info do we have on him (you do say you have no info)?

      In this spot I like to do one of two things. Raise/fold or just call to keep his range wider because I feel a raise is a bit thin with TPNK.
