      On flop I put him on a TT-QQ, AK, maybe AQs range.
      I have many questions here.

      Should I check/raise to induce bluff or bad play?
      If he checks behind what do I do on the A?

      As played, is my bet too big?
      I'm not familiar still with bets under 50% of the pot.
      Is it a bet/fold?
      His aggression is not SUPER small so I'd say there's no bet/fold?

      If he bets the river, what sizes do I call?

      Hi.

      1) Bet the Flop smaller. I wouldn't even bet so large in a 3bet pot, let alone a 4bet pot. Bet/fold is just crazy, big overpair in 4bet pot = nuts

      2) I see virtually no Ace highs in his range when you bet so large on the Flop. So we either lose to the occasional TT/99, or we get hero-called by QQ/JJ. I think jamming could be an option

      3) Once he checks back the Turn we have the best hand 90%+ of the time unless he has some weird slowplay. Betting 20$ here.

      1) Around 7?

      2) If we think he has no A (agree), why do we jam if we can get value only by hero calls?

      1) Yeah maybe 8~?
      2) Well if you actually care about balance here, we should jam this for value cos we are also going to bluff at the Ace a lot. I would bluff jam here with my QJ KJ KQ. This forces him to bluff catch in such spots with his JJ/QQ.
      3) He has 9-12 combos of JJ/QQ (discounting some QQ which may 4bet pre), and 3-6 combos of TT/99 (how often does he even 3bet 99 pre?)

      So while we need him to hero-call some of the time, the amt of hands that actually have us beat here is even smaller.
