Hi, villain is playing 45/26/0 AF=6 over just 33.

I don't know, I tend to get really caught up with these small samples sizes that I'm just starting to ignore them until they reach to 100 hands.

But I'd be more inclined to say that the villain is playing quite LAG.

What to do in these situations ? The hands that I beat didn't make sense to raise the flop (A5-AT). But hey, he seems to be playing quite crazy.

I ended up folding this hand because I thought it was a high variance spot.

What you guys think ?

Hi fp,

Against a villain who has been very LAGgy thus far over the small sample, I like to check/call these spots rather than c-bet. Guys like this can't help themselves but to bluff at the pot thinking we have JJ and they can push us off it. And the beauty is we won't lose value from A-rag because they'll bet that too thinking it's good. I've had so many spots like this where vs. a hyper aggressive player I've check/called all 3 streets and got barreled off by pure bluffs.

As played, I kind of don't like to bet/fold the top of my range vs. a hyper aggro guy here, but reraising would be horrid because he certainly has bluffs and he can just fold those if we raise again, so calling, and now going into check/call mode (to induce more bluffs and bullying) is the other option. Just make sure if you take this option, you are stacking off for his stack. If you're going to fold when you induce a shove, then just fold immediately.

Given his aggressive nature and his half stack, I would call the raise and check/call off personally. I assume he would 3b us with AK/AQ pre so we're paying off A4/A2/44/22, and getting paid by AT-A5/A3, and any pockets or pure bluffs he's getting out of line with... should be profitable in the long run vs. this type.

I would call and pretty much call off any turn.

He can be pretty bluff heavy on this flop texture.
