I tanked on the flop, I'm not thrilled and was considering giving him nitcreds and fold. I have seen players make these kinds of plays with KQ, A8 type hands (not sure if nits do this often though), so I called to evaluate turn. I think this might be a mistake vs villain.

Villain could shove something like KQdd, AQdd, 88, QQ, I would be surprised for a much wider range. Versus this, I'm in bad shape, but then I might have benefited from folding to the flop check raise.

I'm interested in the spot if villain was not a nit. Then I think it's a clear call, but I also question if I should jam flop instead since my range will have flushdraws as well? I don't want to call turn with TdJd for example.

I think my range to the flop is something like QQ+, AJ+, KQ, sometimes 77-TT, TJs, T9s, 87s, KQ and double-sometimes suited aces and suited one-gappers down to 75s. I think I have quite a few hands to bet "for value," even though I believe the board should be slightly better for villains range. Potentially my line should be to call with AQ+ on the turn? Or should I shove flop with all of my range since then my draws get to see both cards?
