      Preflop. I think he will cold call with such range: JJ-22,AQs-ATs,KTs+,QTs+,JTs,AQo-ATo,KTo+,QJo

      His 3bet is 2 so I think he will 3bet only QQ+,AK

      I'm ahead of his range on such a flop, so I cbet for value.

      What he will call on the flop? I think something like that:

      And when 9s hits, I'm not ahead of it anymore. I don't get it really. It practically doesn't help his range, only 99, but if I make it 9c I'm still ahead. Although his flush draws completes.

      I decided to check turn, and evaluate his actions. When he bets so small, I think I can deduct sets from his range, because board is pretty drawy, and he will bet bigger with those. So i think he will have draws and marginal hands in his range:

      And I'm a little bit ahead of his range.

      Now, river completes backdoor flush and straight draws, but also improves me to top 2. And he bets strong now.

      Busted draws is only part of his range that would make his play logical. His river AF is inf, so I guess he's capable of doing that.

      I would call river bet now, after this analysis.

      Now, please, correct every single mistake you see, especially in my ranges that I put him on.

      Hello staktas,

      About the range: he is playing so nitty, do you really think he would even have all the broadways in his flatting range? :) I would definitely exclude most of it. If you add so wide range then practically he had to play at least with VPIP 20 I guess. :D

      But about the play rather 2nd barrel the turn and don't turn your hand into bluff-catcher! We still might even protect our hand and get value from worse.

      Best Regards.
