      Hello foolboydesire,

      Preflop: What's the reason for calling the 3bet?

      As played
      Postflop: River is anyways pretty thin, I don't think that he is going to Call with worse hands either. And sometimes he might even go for Check/Raise with nuts so I'd as well Check behind there and take a look into his hand.

      Best regards.

      i called 3bet preflop because i thought my AJ was strong enough against his range, and i have a position on him post flop and could extract value if i hit :)

      If he is 3betting you light then I'd be even inclined to 4bet. But of course Calling is an option if he really has been 3betting a lot. But that you just thought that your AJ might good ain't enough. :( We as well have to know that the opponent can do 3bets very loosely.
