If you are 5-betting all-in, do you think it's better to have the blockers to his calling range with a hand like KQs or to have the better equity against his calling range (albeit blocking more of his folding range than calling range) with a hand like A5s?

Is it possible him having blockers to a couple of your value hands like AK or AT (don't know if AT is even in your range) has anything to do with his call?  Sorry, I'm an amateur when it comes to this theory so maybe the blocking effect is insignificant/irrelevant, just trying to understand the high stakes play. Thanks.

Hi I'm new to these forums and this theory so I could be wrong; hopefully people who know more will chime in.

I think the concept when constructing your turn checking range is similar to constructing, for example, your flop calling range on a "wet" board.  That is, it will mostly consist of medium strength hands, but you do want to slowplay/add in the occasional nut-type hands to your range to keep it balanced and uncapped so you can't be exploited on later streets.

Hope that made sense.
