      Hey,

      Calling pre is fine, could consider 3bet. How much does he steal preflop from SB?

      Flop is quite marginal for a call. Keep in mind he doesn't cbet that much so if his preflop range is strong, your hand might be too weak to call. You can consider a raise to bluff him off just about all his air and hands below 7x or you should fold. He barrels too often in my opinion to be able to call A high with BD flush unless you know you can take the pot away later somehow, either by turn raise or river bet in this case.

      his steal 38
      resteal 8
      I havent seen these stats much. I am not sure how much they are useful.
      should I see these stats to improve my EV?

      Yes, his steal % is very important. If he steals only 10% his range is a lot stronger in this spot compared to if he steals 40%. You can then take the correct precautions depending on what his range looks like.

      Here I would consider just folding the flop. It's hard for you to get to showdown and actually win there, so I think the best option could be to just fold flop. It's often better to call hands such as JT or even QJ over AJ here, since those play better on a lot of turns.

      ifs

      thank you! and one more question which is not related to this hand.

      i want to ask about bb, for example,if I can make +3bb/100,it means I am good?
      in these days,its something difficult to earn money stationary on for example 200 NL?
      its easier to study PLO and play it to win?

      Do you mean winrate from the bb? If so any positive winrate seems unreal good!

      But I guess you mean overall winrate. 3bb is decent in today's game honestly. If you're good or not, well that's a subjective question; you're definitely good compared to your averege pigeon on the street, but probably not very good compared to Ivey. 200nl definitely requires you to have a firm grasp and be able to play at least solid in almost all situations. I don't play PLO so not sure if that's easier, although I would guess it is. Because, well, grass is always greener on the other side.
