      Villain is a 44/33 player on a verry smal sample (9). Quite unknown but i thought he was a fish, according to his stacksize and stats.

      I 3bet for value. On the flop i don't see the point of cbetting against this guy. Since he checks behind i don't put him on a real hand.

      On the turn i bet for some value against tx,8x or a draw.

      Most draws miss on the river. I dont accomplish annything by betting here. I think villain is able of bluffing a draw so i decide to c/c since he won't beat me that often.

      Hey,

      It doesn't really make sense to change your hand into a bluffcatcher and then bet the turn yourself.
      I would also check/call the flop and if he checks behind still stick to the plan and this check/call again.

      If you bet, do it a bit bigger.

      I would fold the river though, I can't see that many bluffs in his range (I expect hands with sd value to check behind)

      Mwah i think the t bet is quite ok, since there are so many nasty rivers on which we can not call a bet, like anny q/a. I suppose some protection is needed. Villain is unlikely to be drawing on this board given te preflop action. A:sj and a:sq are the only 2 combo's that are drawing here imo.

      You expect hands with sd value to check behind, but you can't see many bluffs when he bets? :)

      Hello Sjors777,

      You make your hand quite easy to read this way that it's rather a made hand, therefore you ain't getting called from a lot worse hands. Though I don't think that he will have many hands on the river either what have us beat, anything like weaker hands as QQ would Check behind and any Kx would most likely bet the flop to protect. So as played seems to be fine.

      Though the wrong play is on the turn I'd say as long turning your hand into bluff-catcher should do the same on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      wouldn't bet flop still be a much better play?
