      Villain is 16/12/3 real TAG he folds to a 3-bet 66%

      Will he ever shove here a weaker hand than mine, do I have enough odds to call?

      Flop: Bet a bit bigger, at least $1.60. For building up the pot and also trying to protect.
      Turn: Bet again for making pot ready to shove.
      River: Here would be the pot big enough to just shove in, otherwise as played I am more inclined to fold there because of my play. Without any reads it's hard to put him on a hand there and I don't really except him to shove there with a lot worse. Your play would be just easier if you would make the line bet/bet/bet. Just ask yourself, would he jam there in on river with AQ and if he even does that, how often or do you even except him to make a bluffraise there ever?

      Best regards.
