      Hi.

      Are you afraid of the River pairing? I don't think his line is consistent with 2-pair or sets on the Flop or turn.

      I think you should raise to 29 bb and call it off if he jams. There's no room to raise/fold vs a 40bb stack. And raising slightly less than all-in looks weaker to a fish so you'll probably widen his range by a significant amount.

      I just think it's way likelier for him to show up with some AX or even trips.

      Is it a good idea to play this hand vs aggressive shortie on the BB?

      About preflop: I think it's ok, both blinds seem passive and weak. I don't think BB is an aggro shortie, he's probably just a loose fish who doesn't 3b much

      About having higher flushes: You must think about how villain's range changes from the Flop to the Turn. I don't see him having too many club draws unless he called with stuff like 2 overs + backdoor flush draw.

      Examples include J:cT and K:cQ. He shouldn't have stuff like 6:c8 too often IMO, that probably folds the Flop. On the other hand, I think it's really reasonable for villain to have all sorts of Ace high after calling the Flop. I would never fold AX in his shoes as well on such a low dry Flop which hardly connects with your range.

      Therefore, I just think that villain has AX way more often than a flush or a full house.

      Thanks.

      no problem :)

      just remember that you should always think about how your opponents' ranges changes from each street to the next. You should not just jump to conclusions - Hand reading is about narrowing down ranges from an earlier street to a later street.

      If an aggro player calls instead of 3bets preflop, he probably hardly ever has Aces postflop. So don't assume he could have that . Same goes for this hand - He's hardly going to have club draws here after calling the flop.
