      This was like the 3rd hand of the match, so no reads except he seems aggro (3bet the first hand). He's probably a reg although I never saw him before.

      I was gonna check/snapcall a standardly sized riverbet, but he kind of caught me by surprise with his shove. I don't think he would do that with less than AJ, and at the same time I don't see a lot of bluffs in his range except 76.

      Would you play the turn differently ? if so, why ?
      would you call the river ?

      Calling here should be really really bad, you have to be correct such a high percentage of the time and usually people overbet with the nuts far more often than with a bluff.

      i dont mind check raising this turn especialy in the start because regs tend to be suspicious and dont like being outplayed and a lot of times they think you have some kind of draw and stack off with a pair of aces

      i snap fold river with no reads in the begining of the match . you get owned almost everytime . he expects that board to hit you hard and he doesnt expect to you to fold too much here when he shoves but he still shoves

      btw i dont like calling t8 pre without any reads

      c/r turn doesn't make much sense, unless you are sure he stacks off w/ Ax like really really often)

      easy fold river
