Hi adi,

As laggy as this guy is I think we just have to go with it. I don't really like your line in general, I'd consider checking back the flop here since there's not much worse he can call us with, and not much to protect against, and induce him to bluff turn/river. Like, he's just going to check/fold hands like JT or 57s, but seems like a candidate to try and bluff us with those same hopeless hands if we show weakness.

None the less, he laggy/aggro enough that he will show up with hands like A4, A5, AT, really any ace, even though check/raising turn with those makes no sense. And maybe some really bad stuff like 44/55. Not real happy with this spot, since our line has somewhat forced his range to be as strong as possible, but guys like this probably find a way to defy logic and still get enough garbage in there such that I'm less happy about folding now.

One important point, the question of what to do now that we've been check/raised is a good question to ask, but the timing is not so good. Ask yourself this question before you actually bet on each street, especially when you're up against a laggy aggro guy. If you are comfortable with the answer (whether that's continue or fold), then make your bet. If you're not sure, then consider a different action (that may be bet bigger/go with it, bet smaller/fold, or don't bet).

Anyways this happened. I could have got away from this hand if I had checked flop
