      I dont like my play in this hand at all, BTN doesnt like to fold neither to 3bets, nor to flop cbets, and has a pretty high WtSD, so I think I should have been folded preflop or on the flop, because 3betting him with speculative hands, and cbetting just once is a waste of money against him... :(
      How would you attack this Villain by the way? He has a 65% BTN stealing range, and calls a lot vs 3bets, so is it better to widen our value range against him, and 3bet hands like KQ/AJ/AT/TT/99 from the blinds?

      I agree with you. You can't 3bet spec hands and cbet only once vs him. 3B light for value, and cbet for thin value, even with A high on certain boards + call his float. I would add QJs+, KJo+ to the 3b value range.
      It's pretty frustrating to have him as an opponent, but it's way better that he calls 3bets instead of 4betting. It's easier for you to play him. Keep calm and wait for the right spot.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Doesn't make sense to 3bet in first place if you planning to just CB once and give it up on the turn. You are just wasting money in long run vs such an opponent and he is making huge profit from you. If you CB it then is kind of must to 2nd barrel vs the range of the opponent.

      Best Regards.
