      Hi Dracsharp,

      Preflop: looks fine. 4-bet size could be larger versus fish (we never bluff in this spot, or shouldn't bluff).

      Postflop: Do we have any particular reads on the guy (doesn't seem like we do)? Or have we seen him bet small with a draw/weaker hand?

      I can see him playing a Qx or strong hand easily like this so without info I think this is a bit light (calling flop/turn - I do agree that after calling flop, we have to often call a blank turn so the question comes on the flop).

      My reason was he could have aa,kk,qq but half of those are blocked and he might push it anyway pre, jj- might be not that eager to put the money in, and of course he could have qx, but not much.

      I couldn't possibly make a range for him, but it doesn't take much for an oddscall agaisnt ak-s 9 combo, 9 combo for qq,kk,aa, him bluffing rarely makes it an easy call.

      It's an easy call as long as he doesn't slowplay big hands or 3-bet/calls AQ/KQ/QJ. I think that he can 3-bet/call AQ/KQ here and his line is very polarized. Either Qx+ or nothing/weak draw. I agree that middle pairs would most likely not play like this.
