      Hey there,

      in today's session I came across this strange hand, strange because of the opponent. He played 26/21 with 25 3-bet and called 4-bet 2 out of 2 times. He was also very aggressive, at the time of the hand he had 6 AF, but after the hand it dropped down to 2.3.

      I think preflop is ok, but I wonder how should I have played postflop? Considering his high aggression I think checking and calling him down would be best, but as I played the hand I didn't want to play the guessing game here and decided to just c-bet and give up afterwards. Any thoughts?

      Cheers,

      I would likely just c/c him down
      he can turn enough hands into bluff to push you out hand that you´re likely have JJ-KK
      And since he can expect you sometimes play AJ/AQ the same way I think he won´t go too thin value with his AT or smt
