      Hello,

      I don't mind calling preflop.

      On the flop I like check/calling here.

      As played on the flop we could consider folding the turn. It's close overall but we are OOP and are not given good odds. I wouldn't say that calling is way too bad considering that we draw to the nuts though.

      As played, I'm definitely shoving here on the river against this guy. He could have a lot of wars hands such as two pair, straight, worse flush.

      Best,

      I prefer check/shoving here.
      He looks aggressive so I definitely expect him to bet his Kx hands here.

      but yeah, the problem may start at the turn :)
      with 9 outs, I need 51% implied odds, but with 8 clean outs, I need 70%, and I dont think I'm going to have it.

      Hello!


      Calling PRE is fine, but I definitely prefer to 3-bet. He opens pretty wide, also fold to 3-bet stat would come handy (small sample though).

      Especially, if we don`t have any reads/known tendencies about the villain. Plus we are OOP without initiative.

      Well, it's up to you to decide whether or not to 3bet bluff or call here.

      If you don't feel comfortable and don't think you could play this hand profitably OOP without the initiative then 3betting is just fine.
