      Anon table.

      As I didnt know anything about BTN, I thought KQs is too good a hand for 3bet bluffing with.
      Flop chRaise? I have showdown value, few really bad cards (any Ace :) ), plus a good draw, so I didnt want to turn my hand into a semibluff.
      River? After I ch/called turn, I dont think it would be a bluffbarrel often enough to call again. Or is it too weak to fold against unknown?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Nah, I guess I'd just keep his range wide, though usually also depends on his 2nd barrel tendency. While he is IP he might easily Check behind the turn, so which may even make me Check/Raise the flop.

      Though as played I'd play the same way, doubt that we are going to be far-far ahead and he has enough of Ax hands and even stronger in his range which may Bet this way for value.

      Best Regards.
