      Villian is 22/16/2.3/17 over 250 hands so i thought its qiute good for 3d barrel bluff, i know I am not repping much but he is neither. So i thought i could bluff out top pair, so what do you think is it good play from his side or bad from mine, he showed KJ.

      Preflop: Cold calling with AQs is something I hate to do. We're in bad spots on flop and later streets very often. I would go for 3bet preflop, I think that's a better option. If we flat blinds could try a squeeze and we have no other option but to fold.

      Flop: He's cbetting with his whole opening range.

      Board: T:diamond: J:spade: 3:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     32.54%  31.00%   1.53% { 55+, A2s+, K7s+, Q8s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, A8o+, A5o, K9o+, Q9o+, J9o+, T9o }
      BU     67.46%  65.93%   1.53% { AsQs }

      We have FD and GS and we're ahead of his range so we would like to charge if we hit our flush. When he calls our raise his range looks something like this

      Board: T:diamond: J:spade: 3:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     41.29%  40.90%   0.39% { 99+, AKs, AJs-ATs, KTs+, Q9s+, J9s+, T9s, 98s, Ks9s, Ks8s, AKo, AJo-ATo, KTo+, Q9o+, JTo, T9o }
      BU     58.71%  58.32%   0.39% { AsQs }

      Turn: This card hasn't change much so what is he folding that he called our raise on the flop with? Not much I would say, only FD. If you decide to go for bet do it 1/2 pot at most.

      Board: T:diamond: J:spade: 3:spade:  4:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     62.14%  62.14%   0.00% { 99+, AKs, AJs-ATs, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, AKo, AJo-ATo, KTo+, QTo+, JTo }
      BU     37.86%  37.86%   0.00% { AsQs }

      Look at my range on turn...that's for a loose opp but 22/16 probably has even narrower range...

      Board: T:diamond: J:spade: 3:spade:  4:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     68.42%  68.42%   0.00% { TT+, AJs, KJs, QJs, JTs, AJo, KJo, QJo, JTo }
      BU     31.58%  31.58%   0.00% { AsQs }

      River: This is no dangerous card. If he called you 2 streets with it he'll call you again. How do you think he's not repping much??? He probably doesn't have set of TT, JJ. But also he doesn't have FD, if he did he would have folded it on the turn.

      Just check behind on the river.
      I would play more aggressively preflop. Also I probably wouldn't shoot on the turn because this card doesn't change much. We're IP so if we hit we can still charge him if good card comes. No sense in building the pot we don't really want to.

      Hello dooleslovs,

      Well, your line is fine till turn. What hands do you expect him to fold there on turn which called you on flop? Rather Check it behind and hope to hit with your hand. You will most likely not make him fold any hands what called on flop. Kinda overplayed your hand. :(

      Best Regards.
