      this was probably a very bad tilted decision, although i dont think its the worst i ever did looking back at it

      pre i call, cuz villains is 28/25 3b:15, ultra aggro postflop, over 100 hands, i dont usually call here, cause i dont like to play 3b pot oop, but given his 3b stat, it might be ok?

      flop i decided to c/r, cause his cb is 100% and i can rep a good amount of AQ combos, + i think i can fold anything but AQ/QQ/77/A7/ maybe AK on the turn if i shove... once he calls im pretty much confident he has a bare Ax and i can fold him out on the turn + even if he happens to have some AK which he doesnt wanna fold, i have some equity...

      as i said this was a very tilted decision, only based on fold equity... :(

      How many AQ combos can you actually rep? You can't rep more than 9 combos of those. If he has Ax you can't rep more than 6 of AQ combos so your value range is EXTREMELY narrow. If I were him I'd play the exact same. You rep draws or spazzes so calling IP to get you to shove on a safe turn is the best play.

      If he's 3betting a lot and you don't want to play OOP in a 3bet pot, 4bet pre some hands. KJs might be right there between calling and 4betting for me but if you are uncomfortable calling, make it 4 pre and go from there.

      After calling pre, think about how you'd play your set, 2pair and most of your showdown value hands on A high. You usually call to let villain barrel and you don't check/raise Ax because it's not strong enough. If you want to not represent a draw here you should actually call his cbet, not raise. It's obviously a tougher spot, it's just something I wanted to point out.
