      Anon table.

      BB played 18/9 after 30 hands.

      As we are BvB, and he is only repping 9x, is it an easy ch/calldown?

      River would get a bit trickier but still prob call since he reps AQ only.

      I am often considering 3betting flop here to get more from Ax since it's BvB he has many Ax that can play like this to try to 'milk' your pairs or induce or just simply thinks he has the best hand so he raises. Calling is default and standard, 3betting is a bit more of a dynamic thing which gets you good value if you have a reasonable idea of his flatting range pre and his calling tendencies postflop.
