The first caller is a Loose passive player.
and the second caller is a 78/37/54 (belive it or not)

Hi fp,

We don't have a 2nd caller here, V6 is the first caller then the only other player is V3 who re-raises you (with a min-raise lol). Not sure what sample size that 78/37/54 is over but he's 3-betting so wildly and is so crazy loose that I'd actually 4-bet him here to about .28c and plan to get it in if he 5-bets us. Normally that's not my line with AQ 100 bb's deep but this guy is way outside of normal.

By flatting you leave him in the lead and he c-bets the flop, and you wind up folding what is clearly still the best hand a fair bit of the time because you've missed (his range is so wide he's missed a lot too and is trailing AQ high). But you can't really call as you'll have to fold to a turn barrel unimproved (not liking calling down with A high for 100 bb's). All that's avoided by 4-betting pre though, and he is so far out of line with his 3-betting that I would take this opportunity to punish him for it.
