      OK, so villain's playing 50/6/2.3(agg)/6.4(3bet): 750 hands

      No specific betting reads, he was playing a bit odd: called KK in the blinds then check called a dry board down to win a small pot.

      Did I over think this?

      Pre: I'm sat on their right on two tables. They had been 3betting v me heavily the last few orbits. Decided to defend 5s. Odds for set mining not too bad, plus felt I could tkae down some low flops.

      River's the interesting bit:

      So, given a three bet range of TT+, AJs+, AQo+, and in the face of the big bet, I just couldn't think what I beat. Discounting TTc JJc as unlikely raisers, AJc / AQc were the only two hands I beat, and I thought they'd have probably cbet the flop (74% cbet flop).

      So AA, KK, AK feel more like they would have taken this line.

      Hello httpeter,

      Bet the turn & river bigger for value. Though as played kinda close on the river whilst the only hand we might see is Q but not sure how man of them he will have. So folding is totally fine there if you assume his range rather being nutted hand. W$SD could also tell us how the guy is playing.

      Best Regards.
