      Too aggressive on flop I guess. Can i go broke there? KQ, TT, JJ, AJ are in his range but also AK, AQ, AT, TJ. Equilator gives 55-45 in his favour for that range.

      Hi,


      If he's a solid player you can probably just fold the flop right away really, he's not going to raise AK/AQ there it makes no sense, and for every JT hand you beat you have lots of AJ/KQ/JJ/TT that beat you.

      If you have some reason to believe he's capable of raising such a flop into the preflop raiser with pair+draw hands (which most players won't do), then continuing with the hand is ok, but i doubt he's going to call a shove with that, so i'd rather call and see what happens on the turn.


      Hope it helps.
