      Vilain is a solide strong aggressive regular 27/23 18% resteal bb vs BTN. Fold BB vs steal 68%. X/R cbet 16%.
      Since I have blocker againts top set and I m in situation BTN vs blinds, I decide to broke TPTK here.

      His X/Raising range here can be that : TT, 88, 22, T8s, KdQd, AdJd, KdJd, QdJd, Ad9d, Kd9d, Qd9d, Jd9d, Ad7d, Kd7d, Qd7d, Td7d, 9d7d, Ad6d, Kd6d, Qd6d, Jd6d, Td6d, 9d6d, 7d6d, Ad5d, Kd5d, Qd5d, Jd5d, 7d5d, 6d5d, Ad4d, Kd4d, Qd4d, Jd4d, 6d4d, 5d4d, Ad3d, Kd3d, Qd3d, Jd3d

      This regular love to defend a very wide range vs BTN steal.

      It may be fine in HU but i prefer playing safer cos of the 3 way dynamic where his cr range should be stronger. Flat the flop raise and if the pot is large enough on the turn i will reshove for protection and fold on a diamond turn.
