      Better to make a weaktight fold right on the flop?

      As played I called minr coz I still have the best hand most of the time
      even tho not doin' real great EQ wise and hoping for a blank turn
      for the equity shift.

      Can't really check@T coz I don't expect many (semi)bluffs to continue and
      check-back would be horrible for us/let him realize his equity.

      Donkshoving isn't too sexy either, but think I'll have smth like 25-40% equity vs "defaultish NL25" range when called ...

      So should be the best option when we decide to call flop and hit 2nd best card OOP?

      Even if we would, for the sake of the argument, consider our AA to be a "pure bluffshove" there we need him to fold 40% of the time there for it to be okay ...

      I did some combo counting and he should be folding more than that @turn ... + decent EQ when called ... should be good?

      I think you should always consider the option of checking on the Flop. Vs anyone who may be aggressive in terms of bluff raising flops, you should check to pot control and induce bluffs. On blank runouts you can just call down.

      Vs the majority of opponents here though, if they are on the passive side, the best play is to bet/fold. Basically half the deck kills your hand, any 6/5/T/J/club. We aren't in very good shape vs his entire raising range.
