      Hi.

      Given positions, I think villain has all combos of AQ, and he has decent number of flushes. How wide are you opening from UTG? Maybe he should be calling your open with a not so loose range. Call 13% should be lower since he is up against your UTG open.

      We are looking at 9 combos of AQ which I don't expect him to fold unless you bet super large, maybe KdJd KdTd JdTd Td9d Jd9d (5-7 combos of flushes), maybe he has some KdQs type of hand too.

      I think we should bet somewhere between 35-50% of the pot. If we bet small we may anticipate some sort of bluff raise and we can then call. If we halfpot it's probably a bet/fold.

      I'm starting at pokerstars today so he can't know my open raise UTG.

      Yeah, I was only considering how much he would call with AQ but actually I should consider a size that let's me bet/fold.

      I don't like beting 33% and then calling cause I don't think he is gonna bluff often enough and I think he will call AQ and ship flushes, and that sucks for us.

      I was thinking about a 3/4 bet on the river. I dont think we can represent a depolarized range by betting very small on the river.

      3/4 pot bet isolates us vs better and also gives us less room to bet/fold. So I don't like such a huge bet.
