      No history, datamined hands. What line would you take against him? I wanted to let him float, I guess he'll do it ofter on this board texture, so I planned to x/c turn, and most rivers. What about this river? His flop calling range is like: KTs+, KQ, AK, 33, 77, 44-66, 88-QQ, suited brodways with BD equity. So I have no vbet on the turn, but I'm ahead very often, so decided to x/c. What if a blank river comes? Can we x/c again? What about on this one? What do you think about his bet size? If he is a somewhat good hand reader, he knows that our range is usually weak, 88-QQ, KT, KJ, and rarely monsters. So no point vbetting this much with Ax, Kx, or even monsters on the river. But will he turn pocket into bluff fairly enough, to make a call?

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: 7x is part of his range and can play like this but no Kx will bet that much on that river. So he is polarized to 7x+ and I would be really tempted to look him up. As you said our hand looks weak and the A is a prime scarecard.

      Even if he bet the turn with his Ax backdoor equity hands I doubt he valuebets that large with them.
