$5 NLHE 6-max: AQs vs LP reg
No solid reads on this guy, no idea if he's an actual winning player or not, but i assume he is a somewhat regular as he's playing multiple tables. So I'm guessing most players range on average would be pretty wide, I hadn't been opening terribly wide, but people think the button gives them a license to make silly calls so i'm assuming again that he is probably calling here to use position against me.
Anyways, flop doesn't bother me too much, i'm ahead of most of his range that isn't a pair, and pairs likely raise this flop too a decent % of the time. So when he calls i feel like he is floating me a lot with whatever random junk he has, or he's playing really weak with some sort of pocket 6 type hand or perhaps he still even has overpairs in his range that are playing kind of weak/trappy.
So the decision comes to the turn, i think i still have the best hand so should i just be betting the turn as well? I went for a check/raise as i wanted the value from the floats he is likely trying to pull here, and it also looks about as strong as i can possibly make it.
Since i'm mainly a tournament player, my raise sizes are usually on the small side, so what would be a decent size to raise here (assuming we actually want to c/r in this spot)
Thoughts would be appreciated (i know i'm getting a little FPS happy here, but i figure i may as well post my thought process so you guys can pick holes in it )
