      CO wins $15.36

      I actually had his range made up of mostly pairs TT to QQ, because I think he would four bet KK, AK, probably even AQ and I didn't think he would cold call me with a pair below TT OOP. Right analysis?

      Hi, though, I am not a hand judge, i thought i can noone will hurt if I'll try. That could help to find my leaks.

      Personally i don't like to 3bet hands like these preflop. I rather cold call. And if i hit and opponent starts betting i try to play wa/wb. If i dont hit i give up or try a move like c/r or floating.

      But as played, flop seems to be ok: if you start aggresive, you continue your aggresion.
      I would rather just check behind to induce bluff. What weaker hands would raise there? Do you tkink he's capable of going allin on the turn with a flush draw? Could he pure bluff here? And is he really so aggresive to 4bet with AQ/AK?

      Hello BrinkyBill,

      Preflop: What's the reason behind the 3bet here? Unless you have some great plan with it, I don't like the 3bet. Rather just Call with the position and play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: What hands do you expect to beat on river? And nope, I don't think that he would always 4bet with AK/AQ and therefore I don't really see many hands what we beat. And I'd just Bet/Fold it on turn or either even sometimes Check behind to get value from some smaller PPs.

      Best regards.
