      Stats in 3.7k hands
      His PFR is exactly 6% from all positions, 4% from the blinds

      This seemed to me really awkward. Flop I think it's standard to check and give up, it hits him hard. I'm not sure about turn, of course the new K reduces his chance of having AK but would he bet AK on that board and would he really call with something worse? The river LOL, what can I be valuebetting against? Even TT hit now and AQ has better straight. I don't think he can have JJ or KK but would he bet worse? What can he have worse? Maybe a setmining pair, would he risk 20$ just to see me fold when my hand looks like total air and he can just press 'CHECK'? Let's say he correctly puts me on QQ because only that and total air which doesn't want to risk a single cent would play this way. Does anyone bluff against straights?

      Hello BadeaCelRau,

      Preflop: I'd already ask here if I am able to 3bet for value or not. Cause the play would be 3bet/Fold here of course. :) Also it's more difficult to play it OOP. But vs such a fold to 3bet and if it's correct it's possible to do that.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment, don't see many hands turning into bluff there anyways whilst he takes rather passive approach earlier.

      Best Regards.

      I squeezed mainly to get the fish, otherwise I won't make much money with QQ since an overcard arrives 43% of the time and I'm stuck oop against 2.
