    Hi Adikumar,

    I don't really like the raise size preflop with this loose guy in the blinds. I think it's too small, with 1400 in the pot I don't see this guy folding that often for 360 more. I'd prefer 850 or 900 and calling a shove from the limper. QJo is ok with position here, if you don't want to raise that big then limping behind might be an option here just keeping the pot small knowing you can't get the BB out of the pot anyway.

    On the turn I think you have to fold unless you've seen the aggro guy spazzing out with nothing already. Otherwise he could be spazzing out with his Q4

      Thanks I folded and he had a good draw but I was ahead of it. He showed me I think it was a fast call if I knew what he had?

        Yeah by nothing I was meaning draws rather than all out bluffs. Either the 6 (pocket 6's maybe) or the diamonds. I hadn't contemplated both.

        He had a massive hand there, top pair with flush & straight draws, but with only the one card to come yeah he's still behind.

        I think it was a pretty good shove in the end by him. Hard to call him off and when you do he's still got over 40% equity when he's beat.

        But you live to fight another day.
