      Hi.
      Villain has been calling down light w TPany kicker and has a 12% 3bet.
      Due to high 3bet percentage I'm not worried about a set, AK,AQ or KQs.

      I gave villain this sort of range:
      A9s-A2s, K8s+, QTs+, JTs, ATo-A2o, K9o+, QTo+, JTo
      if this is close then I have 75%EQ and can defo make a Vbet.

      Are there any hand combos you would defo include here or think there is something I have failed to consider as played?

      Thanks,
      MD

      Hello MasochisticDesire,

      Can't really put the opponent on a correct range whilst not even knowing him. Though about the play seems to be fine, I'd also plan to block-bet the river with our 2pairs vs weaker Ax hands and of course possible 2pairs.

      Best Regards.

      Sure.
      I understand the difference in purpose of a Vbet and a Blocking bet but know nothing about sizing.
      If, after considering hand ranges, you thought the value a lot thinner - would you decide to 'blocker' bet and bet smaller?
      Does 40% pot do both jobs?

      What considerations would lead you to 'block' and how much might you bet?

      Thanks veriz,

      Your sizing is picked really good there, no need to do any bigger nor smaller, gets value from worse and at the same time doesn't look too weak.
