      22/21 17% agg. freq. fold to 3bet 67%(3) 83hands

      Preflop, i think 3bet as a bluff is ok.

      On the flop, i decided to give up. I don`t think i have enough pot equity + FE to Cbet OOP.

      On this turn, should i bet with the plan to bet most rivers, to make him fold some PP?

      This river is not the best, but i thought i can still bet it? Is the sizing ok?

      Preflop: I would just fold here. Prefer to have more reads about his preflop tendencies

      Flop: I think c/f here is fine. His PF range is mostly AQ and pocket pairs here. Don't think our fold equity is too high, especially if he floats AQ on this flop.

      Turn: Don't like your bet size. AK would usually bet larger here. I would bet 7 on the Turn.

      River: I don't think he would have TX here too often given starting positions but that is technically a bad bluffing card if he could somehow have some TX hands in his PF range which chose to pot control Flop.

      Again if you want to bluff at it, I would bet bigger. Should we bet at it though? We should if we felt he somehow calls Turn with pairs below the Ten, as well as AJ/AQ which could fold the River.
