      I dont know if he would chRaise bluff this flop, where he doesnt represent all that much (88/33/A8s/A3s), but that's the best onepair hand I can have here.
      Fold flop?
      Fold turn?
      He is fairly passive on the river, that's why I folded there. Also backdoor flushdraw got there.

      Hi D,

      Although it's super exploitable, I think it's a flop fold. He has no thin value raises plus it's hard to have bluff raises. This deep most people play more honest from my experience and don't have many if any bluffs in such a spot, esp given both your sizings (your bet and his raise).

      If you look in general at his stats, you can see he is not the type to go crazy against cbets, even in 3bet pots.

      Thanks, that's what my instinct told me at the table as well, but I didnt listen to it... By the river I was facepalming myself, cause it was so obvious that he would shove here for value. Good thing that at least I didnt make an even bigger mistake by being stubborn, and calling this off.

      Yeah, I think you can consider calling flop, folding turn as the best line against some people that you think can play back because once you call, they know you have a strong hand and don't barrel turn. He is so polarised here though that your AK is no better than JJ or so since only once in a million times he turns 99-TT type hands into a bluff imo...
