    I don't agree with your choices in the hand. I really dislike the flat with this hand from OOP. It sounds like you decided to bluff catch right from the start, which isn't a good proposition when a speedy player will likely fire 3 barrels often and put your hand in some difficult situations. I'd 3b pre.

    On the flop, you change the story that you were telling preflop. You decide to x/r holding the Ad which blocks a number of hands that he may spew with. From OOP, I'd much rather value bet a player that will call with much worse than I would be forced to play a guessing game.

    If he's spewey, I like 3betting here pre. Flatting OOP with AJo isn't the best. If he 4bets, we safely fold.

    I'm not a fan of the x/r on the flop. We're OOP and against an uncapped range. I think a x/c is the better option. We don't want to build a big pot with a pair that may already be beat.

    Why bet so large on the Turn? $155 into $174. That sizing screams "please fold" to me. If we filled up here, we would want to try and get another street of value out of him. Around $100 seems like a good size to get value from chasing hands.

    We have to be concerned when V calls a x/r and an almost pot sized bet on the turn. He likely isn't folding whatever he has. He's invested 2/3 of his stack in this pot.
