villain 44/18/10 fold to cbet 20% over 100 hands. Not sure what to make of the c/r on the turn but against this guy I dont think I can fold... maybe he could have some queen or draw?

And yeah I got KK not AA did the title wrong lol

Hi pocket,

I think this is just a fold tbh. The guy is loose but somewhat passive, we've shown massive strength at every opportunity, and he's check-raising the turn which really looks like a set. Seems like a Baluga theorem spot.

I think when you say he can have some queen or draw, you're putting him on hands you can beat. I would guess a Q would raise on the flop, if it were going to raise, but in the hands of a this guy he's probably check/calling down a Q. A draw has 2 problems... one that it probably raises the flop if he's going to play it aggressively, not the turn, and the other is that we block a number of the draws by holding the Ks. I would expect to get shown QQ, 99, or Q9 a ton in this spot. (Edit: or 55 lol, same thing though at the point he check/raises).
