      Hello,

      We have 4k hands on him, so stats like fold to 3bet, fold to cbet in a 3bet pot (respectively raise cbet) could be quite useful here.

      Without those stats, I like calling the flop raise. The only better hand that he could have here is 99 (I doubt he calls 66 and KK is probably 4betting).

      Once he checks the turn though, I would rather shove for value there.

      As played, his line doesn't make any sense at all, and considering the fact that he isn't likely to have much draws since we have the Ac, I like calling here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      FT3B from CO is: 27 (kinda low imo)
      FTCbet OOP: 51 (69)
      FTCbet in 3bet: 30 (27)

      So i think if his ftcbet is low, the call looks ok, right?

      So, since he is folding rarely preflop, I would go for a bigger sizing here.

      We should also consider his raise against cbet, but with his really low fold to cbet I would rather just shove here on the flop to maximize the value against Kx/draws.

      The river call still looks good, since he isn't having much flush combos, and 99/66 are just 4 combos.
