      Hey veriz,

      Unreal how badly I'm playing :( . What about this hand?

      35/30/22h. 1/1 foldtoresteal.

      Preflop is fine I suppose. I could 3bet but I'd like to keep his range wide and I don't know if I can 3bet for value.

      I have always a hard time with finding the right boards to bluff on. I did it here with 2 overs because this is a board he'll cbet with all his air.

      On the turn I think I have to continue to let him fold all his Tx/floats.

      On the river I was thinking about a shove but I expect people to fold AT on the turn................................ pfff

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Preflop: Could 3bet most likely even for value here vs BTN and loose range but of course ain't a must.

      As played
      Postflop: It's not really that you can do that against a random guy and especially assuming that we are representing a narrow range there when he has something like Tx we can't make many hands to fold. Only way to make them to fold is also take a shove on the river. I'd Check/Fold the turn with your play.

      Best Regards.
