      I should of known right? Hes 3beting pretty tight range so must be calling pretty tight? but i put him on either KK AQ or QQ, but now that i think about it he's prolly playing KK more passive and AQ mite not even be in his calling 3bet range?

      villains stats are 15 / 9 / 0.9 / 1.3 / 227 hands

      Hello Vip3rNZ,

      The problem on the river is that he is very often coming up with a stronger hand. The only hope to see there is something like KK. I would assume that he isn't coming up with AQ very often here cause we have already shown strength preflop. Nor of course he isn't bluffing.

      So if you assume he is capable of coming up with KK here then we are able to Call, if rather not then it's a easy fold. But now again I would assume that he is very often 4betting with KK preflop.

      Best Regards.

      You are welcome, but you have to realize that his range is also towards strong hand. But I assume you ain't be able to fold in those spots. Especially in 3bet pot. But just ask, what kind of hand is shipping like that, or what kind of hands would you shove yourself this way?

      That;s a good way to put it, if I was in his situation, I'd only really call my 3bet with pocket pair hoping to stack off against AA or KK or AK by the river with a set. That;s absolutely all I could have in the situation he's in, so it really makes sense for him to have the same, unless he's got a really crazy wide fishy calling 3bet range which I really don't think he has.

      Also I wouldn't even call a 3bet from someone with my stats with AK or AQ I'd fold them both preflop to a 3bet from tight reg.

      I wouldn't do his play with KK either, I'd 4bet pre.

      Thanks again veriz :D
