      We had history in few tables getting into 3 bet end 4 bet wars over each other so he ajusted his btn opening to 2 bb and started to call alot so i knew if i 3 bet this midiocre hand he would 90% off time call so i went for compit with ok odds but oop. Is it higher ev just to ch/c cause my percived sb flating range is very weak on A xx boards so he might bluff alot . Is my turn ch/r over play or ok move ? What alternative lines i can use here ( smthng like donig or..) ?!

      Hey dzikson999,

      Preflop call is fine, especially if you don't feel you can 3bet bluff profitably.

      Flop maybe a spot to donk-bet for protection + semi-bluff. Check calling is fine, you are ahead of villain's range, but it may be a little tricky to play OOP on a lot of turn cards, since most are bad for you. The advantage of donking is you may take the pot down + you can also second barrel any spade, A, 4 etc.

      Turn check-raise just looks absurdly strong. I can't see you getting paid off by a lot of worse hands. I'd just check call, then depending on villains river aggression + history, either donk river or check river and let villain fire.
