      14/7/32/32 (VPIP/PFR/ATS/WTSD) after ~300 hands


      I 3b because I just wanna saw how is he reacting to 3bets - I don't have even one hand when he was calling/folding/4betting.

      I always have trouble when I'm 3betting pre as a bluff and flop medium strength hand. What is the best line here? I x/c T because I thought he might bet sometimes w/ worse pairs and would xb river.

      On the river I was thinking about leading as a bluff, but I don't see any better hand I can make to fold (WTSD=30). So i check. He instant shoves. It was really strange. He definitely is not thin v-betting TP, don't think he can shoves with sets and with FD he would bet bigger on the turn to get higher FE. I don't see a lot of flushes in his range.

      I know that this is 14/7 with low AF and high WTSD, but it looks for me like a bluff... so much... I called...


      - what do you think about V's range on the river?
      - how to play this hand postflop from the beggining?

      Some players would shove river for value AQ, since they don´t expect you to c/c turn with fd, but rahter showdown hand
      and if he insta shoves, then likely he is bluffing, since scare card came on the river and he wants to have the most fold equity, so I agree it should be mostly bluffs, easily smt like AJ/AT
      Postflop play is fine, I prefer c-bet with tp hand, c/c turn seems fine and since hand range is quite polarized on the river I´d likely would go to showdown
