      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      Unkown. He was 67/33/3h but that tells us nothing only that there is a bigger chance that he's loose than someone who had 0/0/3h offcourse. But we can't count too much on this so for me he is unknown.

      Preflop
      Vs unknown I would call KJs because it plays a bit better OOP but this hand was a 3bet for me. Offcourse I can call for those odds but because I don't know his postflop tendencies and because my game still isn't perfect I chose to 3bet/fold as a bluff.

      Flop
      Now we have some options and we should have a turnplan.
      1) Check/fold. This is the safiest options and offcourse not a mistake
      2) Bet flop, check/fold turn. This seems the worst option because most players will float the flop here.
      3) Bet flop, Bet turn. I choose this option because he'll float a lot and so there is a lot of value in a 2nd barrel.

      Turn
      Obviously standard then.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      I'd most likely just Check/Fold the flop, you will rarely have much fold equity vs his 3bet-calling range. He may easily even float us with Ace high there with the assumptions that the board is super dry.

      Best Regards.

      Well, that's why I went for 2 barrels... A lot of value OTT I guess?

      Okay but can you say why it is better please? :D

      Would it be a different spot if we had KhJx?
