      He seems aggro (good to know VPIP in relation to this), but is he really always potting his bets? Well you can't really fold the flop as you have TP, but I don't really like that spot on turn. He bets so bravely it just looks he's not giving up ever and would he really do that with <AJ? Usually when I face such a bets I feel beaten if I have a marginal holding unless my opp is maniac and this one seems like one so you could justify calling but overall it's 3bet pot with you being preflop aggressor and flop that hits your range well overall. It just seems like fold on turn for me.

      Hey!


      Just calling pre-flop is better. We're getting a good price, we have position. 3betting will just make his range stronger.

      And this guy is even pretty nitty, so his UTG raising range is already really strong.


      Post-flop, we should just fold on the turn, as he could have us beat in a few ways. It just doesn't make sense for him to go bluff crazy like that.


      So, unless he's a total maniac, folding turn is the play.


      Cheers!
