      I didn't really understand his bet on the flop. Would he call my reraise with a pocket pair. not more likely to be TT, JJ, QQ or maybe even AK like myself. Obviously I had to fold but I was just looking for some insight as to what he might have had. Should I not have c bet to make it look like a bluff induce and then if he checks behind I can fire on the turn?

      Hello clandestineAl,

      He could have played this way with a lot of overpairs here which tries to protect his hand. Also sometimes maybe even sets. Doubt he would invest that much with just pure bluff.

      Also depending on the opponent sometimes it's much safer to just Check/Fold right on flop while his 3bet calling range is going to be rather stronger.

      Best Regards.
