      Hero bets $1, BB raises to $2.90, Hero ???

      How can we defend in spots like this? He doesn't rep anything here and raises a lot, but we are oop. If we clickback, we doesn't represent much either, most likely a rebluff :D But calling isn't seems to good either, because we are oop. Just let it go and wait for better spots?

      just call anyway, you are ahead of his air range

      from my experience when people raise air on these boards they just shut down when you call, because he knows you know he doesn't rep and also you don't rep air by calling :D
      clicking back can be ok as a rebluff but with this specific hand i don't think you need to rebluff

      that said, this specific board does hit some random gutters and maybe he's aware of his image and raises his Qx, in any case i think we can't fold flop so i'll call flop and probably blank turns.

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: He is really aggro which means he can have a lot of air. I wouldn't 3-bet 100 BB deep because usually we wouldn't play value hands like that however here we are almost 150 deep so 3-betting is an option. The other option is to call and try to take the pot away with a turn ck/raise or even donk.
