      Anon table.

      BTN has been 3bet me a couple of times, so I decided to fight back, although without blockers it's not the best hand to 4bet bluff with...
      Postflop?
      I think he would be quite honest in this spot, and after his flop checkbehind his range is something like AK-AT, KK-99 (slowplayed AA is only 3 combos). I thought that if I bet turn AND river, he could make him fold pockets, and Ax, maybe except AK. Turn sizing is too small though...
      Or after I didnt cbet flop, I cant credibly represent strong hands here?

      Would love to make it bigger pf as we are quite deep. 13,5-14,5.

      I would always cbet this flop, it will be much easier to play and you will take it down quite often.

      As played, when he xb turn he probable have SD value, it will be hard to make him fold that, esp with such small sizing, not really sure what you are trying to accomplish.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      As said above, you should be 4betting it bigger instead giving him decent odds to Call. Though I don't really like the Bet on the turn nor river cause his Check behind range is going to be in those spots very often Ax hands. If he wanted to bluff he would have Bet himself there. :)

      If I'd Bet then I'd do it on the flop to get rid of his PPs.

      Best Regards.
