      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Holdem
      5 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG ($13.99) 70bb
      CO ($10) 50bb
      BTN ($25.32) 127bb
      hero (SB) ($21.03) 105bb
      BB ($20.79) 104bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) hero is SB Q A
      UTG calls $0.20, 2 folds, hero raises to $1.20, BB calls $1, UTG folds

      Flop: T 2 7 ($2.60, 2 players)
      hero bets $1.40, BB calls $1.40

      Turn: A ($5.40, 2 players)
      hero bets $3, BB raises to $11, Hero???

      Against most player this is an instant fold but this villain is insanely aggressive and his value range is very narrow.
      His betsize is also scary.
      Are there any hands in his range he could turn into a bluff?

      Your villain here is not a calling station. This means unless you can expect him to raise your thin value bets with weak hands, you should consider check/calling. Value betting all the time works when people don't raise or when you have made your mind up they raise with a weak enough of a range that you can continue. If you cannot, you have to consider alternative plays. In this case, given his aggression, I think check/calling turn and river would work quite well for you.

      I bet the turn because i frequently bluff in this spot and i expect him to call another bet with a Tx type hand.
      But against such an aggressive player a c/c makes sense.
