Villain 1 19/16/9 over 400 hands

Villain 2 34/0/0 over 32 hands

I don't think that this is a good board to cbet on.

Villain 2 spent ages before calling me preflop.

I gave up on this hand on the flop. I think he had a pp or maybe AJ KJ and he just overvalued his hand,but still had me beat.

Hi tony,

Preflop squeeze is marginal here imo. V1 (do you have cut off steal stats?) seems like the type we wouldn't want to 3B in position with AQo as he's on a solid range and seems like he'll probably fold a lot of the worse stuff to a 3B and only continue with the parts of his range AQo doesn't play well against. In this case though we may be able to isolate on the short stack probable fishy guy, so I could play it either way.

Once we've taken the lead in this way, I think we should continue with a bet... he's just got so many hands he'll fold here, and the pot is large enough now to warrant it. It's not a great board to c-bet, but HU vs. a wide range in a bloated pot, it's worth taking a shot at imo. A free card won't do much for us generally anyway with no back door potential, and we have an easy give up if we get called (we might still spike an A or Q to win, or have the turn/river go check/check and win against T9/KcTc/etc.)

As played give up on the turn for sure.

btw if we knew this guy were just totally passive post flop then checking back the flop is fine since we wouldn't expect him to bet the turn without having us beat... our sample size is very small though so not comfortable we can assume that yet.
