      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, Q.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, SB raises to $1.20, BB folds, Hero calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.5) 8, 6, 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.60, SB calls $1.60.

      Turn: ($5.7) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($5.7) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.40, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.7.

      Villain : 24/17/1.4 over 89 hands ; 3bet 20%(40) ; cbet in 3bet pot 67%(3)

      He 3betted me like 4 times in a few orbits. One time i 4bet him with QQ and he flat called my 4bet IP and then fold to my bet on a Txx board.
      This time I decided to call his 3bet IP with a decent hand.
      But he didn't cbet this flop so it's pretty strange cause i think he would bet his overpairs for protection. I bet cause he shows weakness to take down the pot. What do u think his range is when he check/calls the flop. And how should i proceed on later streets?

      Hello dudiloiu,

      Preflop: Calling against those kind of aggressive players is totally fine with such hand. I might even at some spot just 4bet here and go broke against specific opponents who are maniacs in defending and 3betting.
      Postflop: Rather just Check behind on flop and hope to Check it down, your A high might be even good enough. And if he doesn't bet the turn you can try take it down or either just Check it behind as well. Usually aggressive 3bettors are capable of slowplaying their pairs like this and trying to induce bluffs by Check/Calling on flop while being PFA.

      Best regards.
