200nl heads up vs aggro monkey

[converted_hand][hand_history]Poker Stars, $1/$2 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 2 Players
Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

Hero (BB): $1,020.97 (510.5 bb)
SB: $205.96 (103 bb)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 9 T
SB raises to $6, Hero calls $4

Flop: ($12) 9 6 T (2 players)
Hero checks, SB bets $20,

This guys extremely aggro but can slow down at times(not always) when he has some show down. So on a flop like this what do we do? We have top 2 but its very wet board possible straight and flush draw. His cb is pretty much 100%. Do we raise since the boards wet and we don't block draws or do we still slow play and trap since he cb so wide and not worry about bad turns and rivers that might hurt our action on later streets? Him folding to flop raise is about half the time. If he folds to raise I am hating life and if the turn is 7,8 and maybe even a J might kill action it he has show down hand and I am still hating life. Against these aggro guys that sometimes give up to aggression in spots like this I really have no clue what is the optimal line to take here. He will cb shove over a raise with over pair and top pair of T but also will cb bottom pair and rep like a set on all 3 streets.

click it back. This is a pretty dynamic board that you want to have some CR ranges. Top 2 is definitely a good one to put in your range.

his sizing is very huge as cbet. Is this normal for him?

ya its his normal sizing. He pot pot pot a lot. He like to put a lot of pressure in big pot by the river. But if he had top pair or over pair and he didn't like the turn card he would check back and go to show down. But if i raised his top pair he would re raise and go with it on the flop. He denied all of my equity when I had a drawing hand. He would tend to over play top pair and middle pair strong kicker.

We block both sets of 9s and 10s with our two pair. The board is wet. The other thing is you are very deep. Since villain cbets around 100% of the time. I would 4 bet here. With the gameplan to get it in.

Re: 200nl heads up vs aggro monkey

Unless he's cbetting turn >60% check raising will be far more profitable. This flop will dilute our equity, but our hand is still very strong vs his betting range. Once he bets, our hand is best around 95% of the time, but our equity is probably only around 75%. That's versus a normal villain. Vs someone who is opening 80% and cbetting 90%, our equity is probably closer to 80%. But the difference due to his bloated number of combos will really show on some turns. He has sh*tloads too many combos on the flop and that means our hand will improve to beating the f*** out his range on brick turns.

If he cbets 90-100% otf, you can just shove to a reraise and expect to be a slight favorite. Vs a normal opponent, just call to a reraise.

Edit: didn't see fish overbet, just call unless he uses flop overbets frequently. I didn't delete everything I just wrote because you didn't mention the bet size, which leads me to believe he may use it frequently. If so, everything above stands.

Minor thing, but that should read "once he bets and calls".

Sloppy, sloppy, "and doesn't fold".
