      So this player is a supernova, but not the best out there, really.
      Standard 3Bet PF.
      On the flop I check behind because on such a flop I don't want him to fold so easily many worse hands.
      On the turn he takes initiative and I decide to go for passive play as he likes to bluff out or bet vs missed CBets.
      On the river he bets pretty BIG, but I really can't figure out what the hell he could represent.
      That's because from his call OOP PF I exclude any 5 (except 55 but lol really, 4 of a kind?), KK too excluded I know how he plays it, and it's very probable that he's more on a QQ-JJ-TT type of hand, and much less likely that he's on a set.

      The showdown left me speechless.

      Hey,

      Apart from pocket pairs, what is his preflop range?

      I think it's a clear value cbet on the flop and continue from there.

      As played, it's a tough river call imo but a call since you underepped he might feel comfortable value betting this way with a hand like AK, KQ but his range can still contain a few flushes and some FH like 66 and maybe 77 too.

      His hand shows you he gives you no respect so value town him a lot. That's a very wide defend from him, if he has 75s he will have many crappy hands so 3bet depolarized and approach postflop in a smart way IP.

      The problem is that I had no idea of this "lack of respect" before this hand.
      So it left me surprised.

      Could you extend a little bit more on the "3Bet depolarized and approach in a smart way?"

      Depolarized: more pretty hands that flop well like high cards (AQ, KQ, QJs, and all that because he calls worse like 75s, it's proven) and by smart I mean use position to reach showdown often, don't forget relative hand strength and how much your hand is better or worse postflop compared to his range.
