      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players
      vpip/pfr/3Bet/AF (hands)

      MP2: $1.83 (91.5 bb)
      MP1: $0.78 (39 bb)
      BB: $2.06 (103 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.08 (104 bb)
      MP3: $2.42 (121 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.67 (83.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.97 (48.5 bb)
      CO: $2.35 (117.5 bb) 14/10/3.5/2.5 (4100)

      I've watched villain for several months -- he is reasonably good.
      Against me, he is up 200bb, and likely sees me as a bit if a fish
      If I raise pre, I'm facing a 4Bet shove -- I'm certainly not getting a fold.
      I'm fairly sure I'm ahead of his cutoff range, since I've been playing very tight this session.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      UTG+2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, CO raises to $0.12, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.11, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.28) 4 Q 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.70, CO raises to $2.23, Hero calls $1.26 and is all-in

      I thought a c/r more likely to get a fold -- and I generally just plain don't donk, and I would not ever against this guy.
      Should I have shoved the c/r???
      I think that calling the CBet is wrong because I never give him the chance to fold -- and I think he's folding anything here except QQ+,AQ+
      My hand is a coin flip against that range.

      Turn: ($4.20) T (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($4.20) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $4.20 pot ($0.21 rake)
      Final Board: 4 Q 9 T 7
      Hero showed K A and won $3.99 ($1.91 net)
      CO showed Q A and lost (-$2.08 net)

      if you think you're ahead of his CO range and he's not going to fold to your raise pre, don't you have a value 3bet/shove there?

      anyway i like c/r/callshove on flop. drawing for the nuts, fold equity and may even have one clean overcard

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: As long his range is even wide vs the fish I wouldn't even mind if you 3bet there. :) Might be troublesome to play postflop while being OOP. Not that I am saying it's bad, still possible and keep his wide range in the play.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment, as long you even go for Check/Raise then there is not much to do, we are never Check/Raise/Folding with our hand. Too good equity with maybe even FD+possible overcards.

      Best Regards.
