Hi Nocco,

Very small sample size of stats but the guy is TAG, and he's taking a very strong value line. I think we are beat way more often than not here, and this is just a fold. The only legit hands he might take this line with for value all beat us, AQ, KQ, maybe QJs, and 88. It's possible he might play AA this way too, but it's an unusual line for AA and he would probably 3b that pre rather than play a 3 handed pot. So yeah, tough spot especially on limited reads, but I think we're beat a lot vs. this line.
