      can´t really control pot too much in 3-bet pots if you´re oop, so I like your play bet/bet/shove line to get maximum value Qx hands
      What you can do is to c/rai turn if player likes to float a lot. Then you don´t have to worry too much on the river cards and players would then also bet too often with marginal hands, since they afraid getting c/r

      Hello Gonchan,

      I'd just add why do you bet that smallish on flop? Pretty horrible sizing. :( And of course while even being that deep and being OOP I'd raise preflop 4x his raise.

      Best regards.

      Kaitz20, check raise on turn will be good?
      and if it called or raised, what should I do?

      veriz, hmm, I bet that because I wanted to be called by marginal hand.
      However, this desire often cause trouble..
      Your feedback enables me to fix my leaks and I try to do it step by step!

      Since villain looks LP what about blockbet fold or check/fold on river since we would expect a station to check back/call marginal QX and bet/raise IP for value with 2pr+? Also we can benefit from seeing his hand at showdown.

      or is block bet/fold too spewy given pot to stack ratio on the river?

      Personally I would feel a bit anxious about bet/broke with one pair here or is that too nitty?

      Nah, don't Check/Raise against passive opponents. Rather Bet/Bet/Bet vs them. :) They ain't gonna bet without having a some real made hand. Sometimes they even Check behind with some TP type of hand and of course draws.
