      Hi,


      Depends on how tight he is, both preflop and postflop.

      With a raise you're basically trying to get called by weakish top pairs, so if he can show up with AK/AJ/A8-A3 there, there is a decent chance he can call a small raise with it. If however you think he's never limp/calling AK/AJ because he'd raise them, and A8-A3 because he doesn't play them, then you don't have many worse hands that might call a river raise and you should call.

      Most of the players who are limp/calling from any position in a 6max game are usually loose enough to limp/call weak aces, so i'll usually raise anyway the first time and adjust for future hands depending on what happens. I don't hate flat calling the first time either if you'd rather get information on villain by seeing a showdown than risk getting 3bet out of the hand.


      Hope it helps.

      Yeah. That was my first thought.
