      Villain is 60/37 after 18 hands. I like to adjust quickly to retards and this play is rather different to my normal line. Normal Players i would give a range of 99+ AQ+ at the loosest(normally waay tighter) for this play with the addition of possibly some lower pockets for deception or for the donkey factor.

      I would like to know your opinions, would you have played for a bet/call as I did or would you have played for a bet/fold possibly raising less preflop for this purpose.

      Hello,

      I am Raise/Folding here, he will very often have some kind of nuts hand like KK/AA.

      Did you even look at what I wrote? This guy is clearly not a standard AA/KK limp/3better. I appreciate you letting me know what your move would be though.

      I would raise 5BB and fold to a 3-bet, unless he's a maniac and is 3-betting as light as he's 2-betting(from the hands you saw him play in those two rounds).

      As played, I'm going broke against him and making a note, because I think this guy can have anything.

      Versus this type of player I'd be looking to felt any hand that I'd play for a raise. I like the largish raise-size PF as you can open-shove any flop without making too much off an overbet. NH as played.

      Hi,

      Raising to $5 is sufficient. If he calls, he calls you anyway regardless if its $6 or $5 and playing OOP in a big pot is never a favourite spot

      I see people limp/3bet against a shortie who they think is isolating them with as low as 44/KTo but as high as AA/KK


      If you determine him 99+,AQ+ and a funky hand like KT,44 then you need a little more than 2:1 to be profitably

      I tend to call because he is a fish and can 3bet with funky hands

      Good luck,
      Gerv

      Samplesize is too small to make such decisions. I still play my way, and make the raise $5 to be easier to fold.
