**"Play big pots with big hands and small pots with small hands!"** Raise the flop and raise the turn. On these limits you will get paid off anyway. Slowplay is definitely the wrong decision here because you only play a small pot and if an ace comes up you don't know what you are up against.

This is simply wrong. Although our OP is a monster HU, raising versus this villain early in the hand simply encourages him to play his hand correctly.

Let's consider for a moment villain's likely holdings here and how he might play each of them if we decide to jam the flop.

If villain holds 8-x then villain is going to stack us about 90% of the time since he also jams.

If villain holds Q-x then we are going to stack him 90% of the time since he also jams.

If villain is on a stone cold bluff then he will probably fold and we make no more money from this part of his range.

Some further assumptions need to be made. These assumptions are by no means correct but are intended to be utilized in order to gain some insight into how our betting decisions might impinge upon our EV.

Out of the 1225 starting hand combinations possible for villain PF assume he raises with 500, limps with 500 and folds the remainder. Let's further assume that the raising hands include all A-x's and all PP's; that the limping hands include Q-2 to Q-7 (and no other Q's) and 8-5 to 8-T (and no other 8's). ie. Villain limps "72 possible Q's" and"48 possible 8's". Assume 100BB effective stacks and that villain will bluff with "N" of his 380 other possible hands (ie. non-Q non 8).

Our EV=1/(N+120) *[N*$4 + 72*$21 - 48*$19]

If Villain is determined to bluff N=380 and our EV=$4.24 (villain folds flop)

If villain never bluffs then N=0 and our EV=$5

Now suppose villain bets $6 on the turn we call and villain bets $4 on the river and we raise AI and are only called by Q-x or 8-x hands then our EV is as follows:

Our EV=1/(N+120) *[N*$14 + 72*$21 - 48*$19]

If Villain is determined to bluff N=380 and our EV=$11.84

If villain never bluffs then N=0 and our EV=$5 once again

Suppose in a worst case scenario villain could be semi-bluffing with a gutshot (he might also have T-9/J-9) then our EV is as follows:

Our EV=1/(N+152) *[N*$14 + 72*$21 - 48*$19-32*$19]

If Villain is determined to bluff N=348 and our EV=$9.73 assuming we are only called by straights,Q-x or 8-x hands.

Furthermore, even if villain is good enough to fold Q-x hands on the river to our AI we only lose about $1 of our EV.

It's not often that it is right to slowplay but here is one situation where it most assuredly is given x37llnoise's read. NH sir, I like your line.

BTW, the above is not meant in any way to be a complete solution to OP's hand but more of an illustration of the utility of "The Fundamental Theorem of Poker." Also note that our EV goes way up yet again if villain was to make a decent sized river-bluff.
