      Is BU a midstacker?

      I don't really like calling here OOP. Two reasons:
      1) makes it easy for BU to play IP later streets quite often
      2) you always represent a hand with equity.

      I don't think you can have AKcc here to float the raise and check/shove turn, can you? This means you look like Jx, probably KJ+ and it's easy to play accordingly. If you think he is full of it often, I would 3bet flop. He doesn't fold Jx and can think you have FD and snap you off with TT or 99.

      he is not exactly a MSS but he doesnt rebuy to full... always..

      So sir, you suggest 3bet/call flop if i think he is full of it or just fold it?

      I have it very hard to fold to a player with such a high raise CB.

      please advice me on how to approach this kind of players...

      Vs him, I would stack off QQ here now so to speak. Depending on what I see I can readjust. I do expect to see some sets quite often but the value comes when he stacks off a hand like AJ and when he folds or stacks off flushdraws. Him folding a flushdraw is not bad for us when being OOP and if he gets it in we are still ahead of that.

      The other suggestion I have vs people that raise cbets often is to not cbet as much. Start check/calling, check/raising and bet/3betting more. QQ is a good hand to check/call here with while a hand like a set or nutflushdraw is great to bet/3bet.
