      Is it ok to fold flop? He could do that with fd, so I am not sure if I should be so optimistic with calling turn?

      Hi,

      If he raises vs BU open I would call but sinc ehe raises vs MP open, I think you can fold.. people bluff less when your range hits the board but you also have better hands to play back with, you don't need to bluffcatch as weak when your range just has a better ratio of stronger hands than in other spots.

      Since it's a minraise, I think you can still consider the call on the flop but once he continues on the turn I would personally make a nitty fold (though I strongly consider flop fold.

      River is definite fold imo..

      Anyway, I have a few other comments on the hand:

      It's hard to get value with AT when your opponent calls here unless he is super loose. He looks not super loose so I would opt to just check back from the flop quite often and have good bluffcatchers when I miss a cbet in this spot.

      I usually check back with A2-A9, and bluff catch or bet bet. I think with AT I can often dominate his suited aces, he could call here with fd, 89, 9T.

      Would you check back AJ?

      The tighter his preflop range the more likely I am to check it because a tight calling range preflop will be too strong for AJ eventually..

      Plus, the more respect I think he gives my MP range, the more I would check back since if I have a strong perceived range, I won't get value easily with mediocre hands.
