      Hi guys!

      Guy was 20/13 after 20hands very passive.

      Would you consider this spot a spew and why?

      Do you think we can add a lot of 5's or 9's in his 3b calling range (except 99)?

      Is this a good spot to bluff vs basically unknown or should I restrict myself from these spots in future?

      I don't think this is a great 3 barrel spot as the board just gets progressively worse for bluffing. What do you think his flat calling range is to a 3bet preflop? Do you think this board hits it well? I think it does, if he's got an overpair he's never folding (Although I think he would 4bet QQ+ preflop unless he's slowplaying AA). If he has any suited connectors this board hits a hell of a lot of his range, same with mid pocket pairs. Low suited Ax is possible, but I doubt anything but A5s continues after the flop since it's impossible for them to have a flush draw since you have Ad.

      I don´t like it, since he has there too many times two pair or straight that he isnm´t going to fold and at the same time you´re not really going to shove your overpairs, so he may also call you down with one pair hands

      If river was blank I´d likely would shove
