      He could have GSSD, Ax with decent kicker, some 5x too, some good players do this with own pocket pair, too. I think his range is very bluff heavy and I'd call his raise here.

      Hi.

      He reps 55 (which you block as you have 1 5 yourself) and AJ. He also could have some straight draws like QT. This is a clear call with A5o when you are up against a polarized range.

      He cannot have AA/JJ since he should probably be 3-betting that preflop. My plan is probably to call down on blank runouts. Having a Q/T/K fall on the Turn or River would be bad but I'll probably call down anyway unless 2 of those cards hit on the turn/river.

      Thanks.

      Well, runnout was really good for me. Mostly i was afraid of AJ here. 55 is one combo here, but unfortunately it got there :D

      After watching his stats I'm sure his not a good reg, more like nit. I think I could bet/call once or twice and give up then as I don't see him having bluffs in his range. Not even sure if he raises AT or so here..

      Mby its a sample size, but im not considering 14/9 as a good reg for 6max.

      Oooops, i missread it a bit. :facepalm: Thats true. He is too nity. :f_biggrin:

      sample isn't too huge and having 2-pairs here is really strong due to card removal effects. I would not fold on a blank runout for sure.

      Yeah, it might be that he won't even 3-bet pre-flop with AJ or JJ, his 3b is 0 so far :D

      this guy is definitely on the tighter side but still, sample is really insignificant.
