Personally i don't like the cbet, too high a chance of being against a set here from either of the player. I don't see what a cbet accomplishes, you're giving both of them nice odds to draw. Same thing with a smaller one : you're not protecting against anything : even with low hearts (8h9h, 6h7h...) either one of them can peel hoping to win at SD if improved or bluff some cards (mainly K,Q, or even a blank to rep KQ)

This flop is really bad for a 4bet range so you don't really need to worry about being exploited in these spots as they rarely happens and it's gonna even out.

So check/decide is imho the way to go.
As played i would lean towards of call though a simulation will probably deny my intuition. The reason that leads towards a call rely on two points.
1)You said he's a tight player, you block a Q, so a) he won't have all the KK that wants to 3bet; b) there's not much good QQ* left.
2) he knows that he can rep KK here (especially if he's blocking one), and that you range don't really hit this board and he can't get away with it. As for the other player, he can have pretty much anything at this point, his range isn't really that strong. This assumption is one of the keys of the hand : will he expect you to bet here with naked AA, or at least some thing like you have or AAQ
or AAK... ? Or would he assume that you only bet AAhh*? In that case, he most definitely will not shove with one of hands that i mentioned before.

Comment | Proftoutou commented on WSOP ME FT

Checked out the high stakes tweets (well tweets from famous poker pros :D) and the general consensus was : the shove was horrible?
So thought i would ask the one and only >>>> GT : is it really that bad?

We can argue that u have enough sd (he can have hands like AQJJ, AQQJ ...) however given his stats he's probably AA heavy. Even if you're likely to bet all your sets OTT, you can show up with 98,87,86

if he's squeeze happy why do u 3bet knowing that u will be forced to call a 4bet or 5bet (would have been fine with QJo though), seems like a flat pre and call 3bet is the best option

I don't think that volpe is turning something into a bluff here : 4x and 5x can always just peel one more time given that there's a decent chance they're still good (maybe phil has a high TB %, and not to be results oriented but he did bet AK OTT), and i'm not sure that he will continue to bluff with them (at least not all them) otherwise his range would look way to bluff heavy.

I would expect volpe to have picked a hand with more equity, so i would discount 22/33. As for his value range i think that his river bet really polarizes him : 1) we would expect that he bets smaller with 77, 75(ppl are peeling really wide from BB nowadays, but maybe volpe's is tighter) because phil's range OTR contains a lot of flush and he will have a hard time calling this bet with TP and overpairs; 2)he would most likely xR 86 OTF 3) as everyone said i hardly see any fd that plays this way.

I share the same concern that mr sneeze but i think that we can add some more combos of 98, J8, J9 (at least the ones with 9s and Js) that are good to have in the turn xr range. I don't think however that overcards with Q in them (QJ,KQ) will bluff the river given that they are likely to be good and would have bet smaller to extract some value

i agree and let's just ignore this attention seeker. You can't juste convince these dudes, and no matter what u say they'll always find another counter argument (completely inaccurate btw, but they don't care). Only way to combat is just to ignore them, let them talk. I hope that my message will be the last in this silly debate .

Man, find something useful to do in life and just... get lost.

FYI : according to highstakesdb, Phil played 67hands PLO hands this year. LOL

and when did antonius said that? link to the source

You're just trying to make a point and you can't be convinced, coming up every time with a new argument. When Isil and Odd think of him as the toughest plo player, no need to pursue this discussion further.

Odd oddsen on Phil Galfond last year : 

I don't think villain needs much introduction, he is probably the best/toughest TAG out there right now, so getting reads on him is pretty tough.

FWIW Odd oddsen topped the plo leaderboard last year
