      That's weird, I think at the time of the hand villain didn't have so wide 3ber range. Anyways, not sure how to approach flop.

      Hi,

      Check/call flop and go from there. It's a tough spot ofc being OOP with A high but you are ahead of his range usually.. Depends on what cards come off and what sizing he bets but we usually want to call twice imo.

      As a preflop sidenote: you might be able to 4bet this for thin value and get called by worse most often. We know that his 5bet is very likey nutted but he also doesn't fold to 4bet that often so he calls worse Ax and suited stuff, probably medium paris as well.

      Blergh, I think it's close but he shoudl barrel that card often as a bluff and unlikely to bluff river once you call turn imo so yes, I do like calling the turn here. I also expect him to bet bigger with a strong value hand.
