      I have read alot of 2+2 threads about not turning these sort of hands into bluffs by 3Beting PF but agaisnt an unknown it proberly wasent the best play. I decided that a player wasent going to bluff 3 Streets on this limit.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      Well, then you are totally correct. :) Usually when we are 3betting in those spots then the case is that we are just turning our hand into bluff. Rather play it passively.

      As played the turn is kinda marginal for us since we most likely only beat some overcards which have a FD. But can we even expect him to 2barrel it? Why ain't he just taking a free showdown with the draw. So therefore there ain't gonna be a lot of hands on turn which we beat. Therefore, I'd even prefer rather folding it right on turn to avoid the play on river. As you see you pretty much beat the same hands on river which you Called on turn. :)

      Best regards.
