      speed poker, no hud. BB was reg though.

      Wasn't thinking too much while playing.

      Preflop: we get nice price to call + position.

      Flop: I go for big raise since I want to get it in as soon as possible if he has Ax hands. When he only calls it sure is weird.

      Turn: With line I took I can't fold here.

      What are alternative lines?
      Flop: cold call and reevaluate on T?
      Turn: FD came so I can't go easily broke - call would be ok I guess. But he does represent at least AK, AQ if he barrels.
      River: cold call and see as cheap as possible. We can beat AK, AQ but also if he has set of 7 he's not so thrilled with me calling 2 barrels.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: What range do you expect BB to min 3-bet here with? I would assign AQs, AK, AA, KK, QQ maybe JJ to a random fishy guy.

      So calling for 2p+/fd is fine.

      Postflop: As played I don't mind raising the flop and going with the hand. There's only one combo of hands that really beat us (without adding random hands in his 3bet range). For example he can have 2X4 = 8 combos of AK here.
