      I was thinking about was on how to play back against people who call a lot of 3bets in position. On the flop, I thought he would probably never fold, even with complete air. Then, on the turn, I have a really hard time shoving, because he will often go broke with his pocket pairs.

      I thought: how do such players make their money if they call so much pre-flop and on the flop? They bluff a lot, no? I thus checked with the plan to shove on a bet; I think I will fold out a lot of weaker hands, but possibly even his small to medium pocket pairs, while still having decent equity in case he decides to her call with them.

      I don´t see any reason why I should risk over 100bb on low boards against player who would likely not b/f any pair.
      I think c-betting is usually profitable and that leaves you option double barreling on the turn or for example going c/rai on J turn, but I don´t like risking that much money to try fold out air.

      best regards,
