      Hey Dracsharp,

      Preflop: That's a pretty big squeeze, almost the size of a 4-bet. I'd probably make it smaller there to about 15-17 BB.

      Postflop: As played even a $2 cbet could work wonders here. Were you afraid that he only has pairs in his range or why do we check?

      I checked because he is aggressive and we do not need to turn our hand into a bluff nor we have a clear vbet either, i planned on c/c but reevaluated.

      If you look at his stat we see him folded to cbets but it was not heads up 4bet pot ip and he is very aggressive. I often find fish fold to cbet misleading due to the fact they do most of the folding in huge multi pots.

      This guy is not necessarily a fish and it seems that you again default to making decisions based on no samples (unless you saw some showdowns with his aggression).

      A $2 bet only has to work 30% of the time here and I doubt his range is made up of only PPs.

      True no need to judge him early, but if he is a reg then what kind of range would a reg have here ?

      qq,jj,ak ? qq,ak ?

      I'd go with TT+ (few KK/AA) and AQ/AK possibly some AJs/KQs.
