      Dealt to Hero K:spade: A:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.20, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.68, UTG calls $0.48

      FLOP ($1.38) 5:diamond: 8:diamond: 5:spade:

      Hero bets $0.96, UTG raises to $10.39 (AI), Hero folds, Hero folds

      UTG wins $3.20

      84/74/10.7 fold to cbet 83

      When he pushes on flop he might think - the pot is big, and the board does't hit his range, so I try to bluff.

      On the other hand he might have a pair. Don't know what to do here.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Against such an opponent you could easily consider even Check/Fold the flop since PPs are very often in his Calling range and also such a loose opponents is very likely to Call with very wide range and being OOP we will never know where we stand. We should do at least 2barrels there against such an opponent because he often could float us but that's way too big variance so I'd prefer just to Bet/Fold since it's 3bet pot and the barrels would cost for us a lot.

      Best regards.
