      my opponent was extremely aggressive... frankly i was having a hard time with him. it was almost impossible to bluff him in any hand and i couldn't put him on a hand either. How do i deal with these players? and when i raised on the button with good HU hands like Ax or Kx he always 3betted me.. i could reraise him all in but i don't wanna gamble. if he calls and has 2 live cards it's still 60/40. good thing he tried to bluff me here also :)

      If he is so aggresive, I will check behind on the flop.

      Imo nh.

      Don't play with opponents who make it hard to play against, you don't need to play against them, just pick some bums who have made deposit and don't know squad about poker/BRM.

      Playing against these opponents. I tend to be more passive. I'm raising BU the quite usual stuff (22+, A2s+, A2o+, K2s+, K2o+, Q2s+, Q6o+, J2s+, J7o+, T6s+, T7o+, 96s+, 97o+, 85s+, 86o+, 74s+, 75o+, 64s+, 65o+, 53s+, 54o, 43s, 32s - from Introduction to HU play) and call 3-bets with this range: 22+, A8s+, ATo+, KTo, K9s, QTo, Q9s, JTo, J9s, T8s, 97s, 87s, 76s, 65s. Simple imo. On BB I 3-bet with AT+, KQ, 22+ sometimes some connectors and call rest of that 3-bet calling range. But be careful! These opponents like to go all-in preflop with 44+ A9s+ stuff hands, so AK is usually nuts here but the variance is quite big.

      On flop I don't continue with my missed hands and try to trap the guy with premium hands. You should generally get much money with TP kind of hands and 2 pairs is absolute nuts.

      against overaggro spewtards just wait for a good top pair and let them spew to you.
      check behind hands that can't withstand a check/raise like this one, don't valuebet too thin, play passively
      minraise buttons, tighten up OOP

      hitting straightflushes is also a perfect strategy
