      Hey,

      He probably uses his image to pull bluffs against regs so it's very good that you are aware of that. Can you look at his raise 1st or steal from CO? I think calling here is fine, unless you can include KK+ in his range. Those 12 combos will be quite important when weighing your equity.

      As a standard, I think your line is the best against a regular but I could definitely be wrong against this specific guy because when he is not an ABC player it means you need specifics about HIM, which neither of us have. He can be creative/aggressive so that's why I think folding QQ here is too weak but definitely not a money printing spot either.

      Thanks Manu.
      He opens CO 13%.

      That's actually quite tight. I am a nit kind of and I open around that amount from UTG. This makes postflop for sure quite tough. Such a small opening can mean he does not 4bet that much if he is aware of his imagine.. A nit that 4bets will rarely get value so he might flat KK+ like I mentioned in the previous post.

      It's probably still a call because on the turn he has 7 set or better combos and if we exclude KK we don't need many bluffs. To keep in mind is seeing him with KK+ here imo. If he has that, he has 19 value combos on a dry board, he rarely has enough bluffs then.
