      Hi M,

      Why do you decide to check the turn?

      I think your line here should bet turn and then decide river, possibly shoving it.

      This is my standard line vs aggro fish (As this guy is). I cbet 1/2 flop, because they can't fold to 1/2 cbet (super rarely), and then I check after what they get crazy on turn (when they have nothing or weak hand, and when they have nuts they check usually, or bet small). Then when they bet I usually shove, and I get called super often with A high, or middle pair, buttom pair (I think they feel committed).

      Here I didnt shove turn because we are deep, and the board is not great, but I would shove AA, KK.

      Your line is meant for 100bb deep, not for this stack depth. Betting is clearly better here, especially with these stack sizes.

      4bet way bigger than 11. Even though this is not a good board for your range and having a strategy where you check your whole range on the flop or turn vs good players would be good, I can't really imagine any line, that would beat bet bet jam vs this guy, maybe bet bet c/call on some of the biggest bricks if he is in fact really aggro.
