      -12/12 nl50, vs me, 3bet BBsb 4$, cbet/f 6/8 KQxss"

      I thought about turning into bluff river and shoving to fold Qx and JJ. Besides, does it seem likely villain has a c/c range here?

      Hi Double2,

      Preflop: Since he is very aggressive, and if we had aggressive dynamics (lots of 3-bet/4-bet) then we can just 4-bet this preflop and go with the hand (a lot of money would be made from him folding his 3-bet). Without dynamics or without expecting him to stack off light we can't 4-bet/call. So the 4-bet would be a bluff.

      What's his range on the river?

      A guy with this high WTSD over such a sample is most likely not able to fold a Qx on that river. He may not even fold JJ.

      Think about what you represent when shoving? You don't shove AQ/Qx, you rarely ever have a Kx so the only thing you rep is a slowplayed monster or a flush.

      I can see villain checking for example AK here, KJ, Kx (Kh).

      But with a Kx type of hand isn't he better off just shoving river and hope to get called? I mean, vs me I think that line is way better than c/c, I don't see myself betting worse than Kx that often (although I did do it this time :s_evil: )

      So if he shoves Kx there, especially a weaker Kx (not AK) can he expect to get called by much worse?

      Can he expect you, or a regular to call 88-JJ, Qx?

      If we are in his shoes with Kx can we expect villain to call much worse on this river?

      I get your point and it is very valid. I'm still getting used to this kind of line of thought, where c/c calling this river is better, since opponent can turn something into a bluff, that just jam and expect to get called by Qx.
