      CO = 9/9 in 33 hands / steal 50% so far
      BB = 29/17/1.9/32 VP/PF/AF/WTSD in 123 hands / fold to cb = 38%

      Is it ok to 3b pre flop for bluff (maybe I should 3b to something like $3.75 instead of $4.5)?

      And when I get called by the BB? Is it ok to cbet this flop or should I just give up the hand and xb?

      thx!! =)

      I scare BB's hand(3bet called)
      and on flop he often call your CB because of board structure so if CB I'll burrel twice but his donk turn shut down my action.

      Moreover, I won't CB against him.

      Hey

      Wait CO is a nit? Why do you want to 3bet bluff a nit with no blockers? 22 plays so poorly postflop and you virtually hope he is folding postflop.

      You basically have one shot on the Flop to let BB fold an dhop ehe does not have AJ?AQ/ATs

      Best regards,

      I have the idea that these kind of opponents will fold a lot to 3bets when they are stealing pots so I tend to 3bet bluff a lot in this sittuation. His overall steal so far is 50%, do you think I can have a profitable play if I assume he steals something like 15-20% from the CO and folds 1/3 of the time?

      thx! :]

      No if he folds <65% of the time, u need to have some sort of hand that increases either your fold equity or your pot equity. Duckies don't do any of these variables to increase your EV

      I so much prefer blockers or playable hands that can flop something to semibluff
