      Hi.

      The 4BB open raise seems weird to me. Maybe it may be a stronger hand than usual. But if he's opening 4BB with an 80% range, we should be abusing him pretty hard with 3bets.

      Without reads I would fold the Turn. The board is so coordinated and it's hard to imagine him showing up with worse very often. What's his fold to 3bet %? The tighter his PF range is, the less I want to c/c here. I think we lose to KQ JJ TT KJ AJ AT 78s AXs etc. In order to justify calling the Turn, we'll need him to have 45s 56s 46s 57s 67s K8s Q8s. I honestlyt don't see him having those hands too often so this is definitely a check/fold.

      BTW I am checking AK and AQ a lot on the Flop vs a good aggro player. So I won't be too afraid of getting exploited here by a bet and shove.

      Basically this spot is read dependent and I would fold by default, but if you have a good read on him having a super wide preflop range and then always firing twice in this fashion then go ahead and make a c/c here. But I think you are either barely good enough to call here, or making a super huge mistake

      ----------------

      Looking at that hand, we didn't get to see the showdown. I have no idea how you are going to draw the right conclusions about villain's play there.
