      Hero (CO): $24.94 (99.8 bb)
      BTN: $26.16 (104.6 bb)
      SB: $29.49 (118 bb)
      BB: $25.68 (102.7 bb)
      MP: $64.17 (256.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:heart: Q:club:
      MP raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, 3 folds, MP calls $1.50

      Flop: ($4.87) 6:heart: 8:diamond: Q:spade: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($4.87) J:spade: (2 players)
      MP bets $3.65, Hero calls $3.65

      River: ($12.17) T:spade: (2 players)
      MP bets $8.25, Hero folds

      Villain is 21/17 over 217 hands 17% CO steal 50% fold to 3bet only 2 situations. 0% fold to Cbet (3 situations) 1,6 AF. I wanted to know how he react to 3bets OOP, the hand is playable IP and i decided to 3bet as a bluff.

      So i flop weak TP. During the hand i decided to check behaind, but now i think betting is better. He can call me with worse (99-JJ) and i still can check behind the turn. Vs. more aggresive opponent ch/b OTF will be better.

      After i check behaind the flop, i think the turn call is fine.

      I improved on the river but i don`t think i can call this big bet on the connected board.

      Hello AchillesBG,

      Well, the question is if you should be 3bettin in first place here if the guy doesn't fold to 3bets, nor he doesn't fold to CBs. So how you planning to make him fold? :P Most likely I'd just leave the hand alone here. But otherwise not much to comment on postflop vs passive opponent.

      Best Regards.
