      Hello!

      I know that the flop is good for cbeting, but the problem is that I think that Kx is quite big part of his 3b/calling range (especially AK).. I don't expect him to call with suited connectors or pocket pairs that often... In addition, he rarely folds to cbets so I don't want to bluff him..

      sure, why not. :f_biggrin: i'd make it like 2.22 though

      i think this is a good flop to fire a cbet of like $1.50 and give up. our perceived range is very strong and he may fold QQ- type of hands
      if you think that's not going to happen or his flatting range has a ton of traps then c/f is fine.

      I actually disagree.

      He doesn't have any worse hands that pay you off or better hands folding. That just smacks his range. Even against TT/JJ/QQ your not in great shape and with a ftcb of 33 he's not letting go easily.

      I'd c/f. But if you do cb it'd make it ~$1.5-2

      we just want him to fold preflop. :f_biggrin:

      even if we're ahead of his 3betting range it's going to be tough to play it properly postflop.
      postflop whether he folds to a cbet on this board is not that much connected with how much he has been folding on normal raised pots. he just can't continue with a lot worse there if he has any idea of what he's doing, i expect him to have a lot of traps though

      That's true. Although I'd still expect him to float with TT-QQ a good percentage of the time... Espc when he has position on us.

      Hi,

      With AJ you might easily just raise/call pf- sure you´re often dominated, but if he is 3-betting any Ax hands, then more likely you dominate over his weak Ax hands. If you want to 4-bet bluff then it is also fine, but that case you should c-bet flop- very often players would put you automatically AK and would fold their 88-QQ hands, also they might call you all sort of Ax hands or suited connectors that all missed, but since you can´t really c/c him down I think taking at least one stab would be more profitable than c/f

      best regards,
