      edit: he shows 72o

      Flop is obv std, but im curious what you guys think of pre. Obv the 3bet, 5bet, 7bet, and 9bet are for pure value.

      It gets pretty interesting once he 10bets. His range at that point is almost entirely hands that I crush, as almost no one 10bets as anything but a bluff these days. I could obv flat and let his dominated hands stay in, but I thought I could get a bit more with another series of reraises.

      After my 21bet, i'm a little worried he has a hand like 4h5h and consider shoving to fold out his equity, but I decide to continue extracting value from all his 73, 23, 92 hands that I want to stay in the pot. I stay with my read until we get to the 42bet, at which point i decide to throw him off with my sizing.

      My normal 43bet sizing is 1350, but here i decide to go a little bigger since my hand is so good and it's unlikely he knows too much about my 43bet range as this is our first match in a while. Once he 48bets i decide to flat and see a flop, which from taht point on i think explains itself.

      Any input appreciated. srsly :f_biggrin:
