      Villain is 11/8/1/40/395hands

      I'm guessing his range for calling a 3bet IP is QQ+ AKs+

      Pre: I am 3b/broke here
      Flop: I dont expect him to call any Jx here, so I'm check/calling vs his DB's with AK at a push and QQ. and for pot control vs KK/AA
      Turn: I didn't think I need to bet for value or protection since I am either way ahead as its only Ax Qx that I am worried of seeing. I am also playing for pot control on the turn vs KK/AA again.

      Am I missing value for QQ here? I think its only one possible hand I am "value betting" against here?

      River: I preferred leading here since I thought I might get called by a passively played AA/ case K (unlikely, I know)

      The only other option is to check to induce but after he checks the turn I think he has AK/QQ exactly and would probably just check behind given his stats

      Hello muel294,

      Why do you Check the flop? Standard CBet spot for me. So overall pretty horrible play. :(

      Best regards.

      should have just bet/broke and if he's flat AA or JX (however unlikely) then just bad luck?

      Most likely I would have gone for Bet/Bet/Bet line. There are still a lot of hands which may pay you, starting from different PPs. Sometimes even floats.

      my play is kind of retarded since i 3bet for value and then get scared of AA or Jx (which an 11/8 will almsot never have i would imagine when he calls a 3bet from EP)

      just wasnt thinking, need to cut down to 2 tables.

      thanks

      ps looking forward to beginners course :)
