      I think the 3bet pre is good for value at this level particularly. Sizing is fine, but I think you can make it even bigger and still get same call range from the co.

      Again, flop is fine, but you can make it much bigger, up to 1.80 vs this guy. That may or may not set you up to just ship or at least commit on the turn on a very drawy board.

      Turn is fine as played - I think he will raise get in QJ+ which you have dominated. Most of his sets will normally raise flop. Given his agg freq - he might even raise get in KQ or flushdraws. This is more than fine.
      If you fine yourself against tiny combinations of 98s or he trapped with sets, thats unlucky but you are never folding in this spot vs this guy.

      You played it fine. Well done.

      Sorry. seat 2 is button. I was looking at seat 1 initially.

      0.9 agf does make considerations different. Its less likely this type of player will raise draws.

      There are 3 types of player he could be:

      1) But still possible he raises QJ+ as a kind of blocker raise because he is scared of draws and think TPQK is the nuts. He will also definitely call after you raise get it in. Vs 98s, T7s,J7s & QJ+ your hand is still favourite.

      2) As he has no 3bet range he may also call Overpairs pre which may take this line - If you put these hands in his range it would make the turn a call and then check fold river as he would check back QJ, KJ that you beat, and he bets everything we lose to. We can't be sure of that though so this line kind of sucks.

      3) This might also solely be nuts 2P+ which make it a fold.

      Until I have solid notes on the player, I assume he is a (1). I have seen plenty of low aggression factor recreational players do spazzy things when they get bored, so you can't give them too much credit. I am basically never folding TPTK vs this type of guy.

      I think you played it fine and the points on flop and turn bet sizes still stand vs this guy.
