      V:20/16/f3bet 83/af 3.9
      cbet flop 78%/ cbet turn 40%
      AGG FREQ flop 41%/ turn 42%/ River 14%
      WTSD 18%/ W$SD 43% 375 hands.

      Generaly I don't how to play these kind of hands.

      I don't know what is better pre flop, 3bet or flat? 3bet seems to be a bluff, and with 99 maybe I could get more value post.

      Flop, the best is just to call/

      Turn is hard, Q is a perfect card to barrel, but I don't have any particular reads on him, and I fold to save money.

      My alternative line was to call turn and c/f river.

      I think better is to call pf, since his range would likely be a little too strong that you can 3-bet there profitable.

      If you take that he would open 12% UTG (that 20/16 might easily do), then you´re ahead on the flop and should rather take initiative:

      board: 587
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      12% 37.55% 20,133,192 848,256
      99 62.45% 33,761,592 848,256

      So I´d prefer leading out there. c/c is also fine, but then you give him option barreling you any scare card+ he would exactly know that you have there some kind of medium pp.

      Turn you´re flipping against his range:

      board: 587Q
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      12% 50.34% 4,414,968 83,736
      99 49.66% 4,354,800 83,736

      and he would likely going to barrel there every time if he has AK, so I think c/c is better than c/f to then decide on the river.

      If player has betsize tells- to bet close to pot with good hands and half pot bluffs, then you can also consider c/f flop, since he shouldn´t usually bet that board too big with AK

      Hello Janosikgdy,

      I don't like that much in those spots to donk. I mean of course it's possible but when the guy has CBet of 78% then why not let him CBet with hands like AJ-AK or whatsoever overcards which may fold to your donk. :) With his CBet turn he most likely is giving up there anyways and we can perfectly well play the way you did play. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
