Re: AQdd in HJ - flat to keep the fish in?

It's for sure a risky just call adjustment (unless you have lots of calls w AQs here) with the fish behind, but if he's stationing hard, then it might be worth it. About relative position, as we see here, when the flop goes bet call call, the 'strong' player knows that he is forced to have value only for the remainder of the hand - that's what happened here, bet call call, and he was forced to check turn bc the presence of the fish overcalling your call means he cannot have bluffs and has to give up the pot.
+1. Agreed. I can see the argument both ways for sure, but this is how I see it wrt V2 having to narrowly define his range or just give up on the hand once the turn brick hits. Bluffing in his spot makes zero sense.
