      Hero posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has K:diamond: T:diamond:

      fold, CO raises to $0.75, fold, Hero raises to $2.50, fold, CO calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25, 2 players) 4:spade: T:club: 6:diamond:
      Hero bets $2.75, CO raises to $7.00, Hero calls $4.25

      Turn: ($19.25, 2 players) 6:club:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($19.25, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero checks, CO bets $20.00, Hero ?

      Villain is 21/17 AggF 3 WTS 21, he flods23bet 79% his 4bet range is 2.5, he raises cbets in 3betpots 67% (4/6)

      So when I hit TP on flop I cbet for thin value and I think its better way to play my instead of turning it to bluffcatcher OTF. When he raises and I see his raise cbet freaquancy I do not think I can fold. Does 3bet acomplish much on this kind of flop? I deside to call and reevulate turn. Turn is good card for me his nuts now only 1combo of TT one combo of 66 3 combos of 44 or mabee less and overcads which he decided to slowplay. When he ch/b turn and bets so much OTR its realy strange, of course he could have bluffed w Ax, but why bet so much? What do you think about his line?

      Hello dooleslovs,

      Preflop: What's the purpose of 3bet, is it as a bluff? You are mainly isolating vs stronger hands this way, though we may easily play the hand postflop by even just Calling.

      As played
      Flop: Well, I don't understand, if he raises CBs a lot then why to CB in first place? Why not just turn hand into bluff-catcher and let him pay you off.

      As played
      River: Well, he is polarizing his range but I don't see myself calling it down for pot size. Even though if he bluffs he could do that also with smaller Bet, so I'd end up folding.

      Best Regards.

      Hi thanks fo reply,

      Pre it is like semi bluff, I think it is is too week to call OOP, and it has qiute good playabilly vs calling range and with iniative.

      I noticed his raising freaquancys only when hi raised, I do not have this stat on my HUD only in POP UP.

      River I folded too, but it seemed very weird, did not find a lot hands in his range with which he could play like that for value.
