      Hello!

      I usually don't like open limping pre. I tend to raise if pot is unopened and I have a hand I'm willing to play. Calling raise is fine as you have odds to setmine, but it's still not going to be tricky just because you are OOP.

      Your stacks are rather deep, so I tend to raise flop or at least float turn, because you have a good hand and you want get value out of it. He may not have much of a hand on that flop, but he's going to call with a draw, Jx, maybe overcards/pocket pair if he sees your raise as attempt to push him off.

      As played I would most likely c/c river because I doubt you are going to get value from worse hands, because every 66+/8x now beats you and by checking you give him at least chance to bluff if he's able to do that. That's the reason to get as much money as you can on flop and turn - by that time you had the best hand, but now it's not clear just because he may cbet with a lot of pocket pairs and his raise looks like raise for value. You may call his raise, but I tend to say you are going to be beaten here often.

      Good luck!
