      He opens EP 13%, so I am not sure if it is even profitable to call AQ ? His range consists of probably AJ+, and PP. Versus PP we get action only if he hits set and I hit TPTK, and versus AJ+ I am not great.

      Also I am not sure if I should call down on this board, or raise to protect and play for stacks? There are many action killer hands, so I preferred to get it in, but which hand calls is the question ? I think AK is maybe the only weaker which calls down (if not nitty) and TT, QQ, AQ, AA, also continues. I am not sure if KJs belongs to his range.

      Hi GingerKid,

      Preflop: 13% is not that little.

      For example: 22+,ATs+,KJs+,QJs,ATo+,KJo+ is 13%.

      So we definitely have at least a call.

      KJs can be part of his range and so can KJo (look above). I think that we only get value from AJ/AK for 1-2 streets at most and if he were to stack off I think we'd be in bad shape (we may beat AT that goes broke). So unless we have some aggro image/history or villain is spewy I would not be too thrilled to get the money in here.
