      Hi D,

      Yeah, against your super call happy opponent I think the best option is to ship it for value.

      I would not be surprised if he had hands like AT of spades in his range.. definitely has T7, JT, QT to call with. It's the sort of opponent you would say it's bad to bluff because you have no idea what he could call with but then the opposite also applies and you should value bet your good hands because you still have no idea how low he is willing to go with his calling range.

      Hi Manu ,

      vs this opponent why not ch back flop? The only hand that he will fold will be AJ,AQ,KQ without draws, hands which we dominate anyway.
      And in case the turn is A or K, be can bet big for value.

      I think AK with no , A:cQ is also a check and bet with AQ no and all AJ.

      Hey Alin

      If our opponent doesn't slowplay KK+ this way he always has a an extremely tough spot with his capped range unless we barrel too often with super weak hands and he knows that. The case we have here is we have equity, blockers and Hero image is probably not that insane.
