      Hello MisClick,

      Preflop: 3bet size has a leak being OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: What's the purpose of just CBetting the flop once & done? You wont make many hands to fold by doing that even if he folds 2/2 cases so far. :( So if you CB the flop then ship the turn cause you clearly betting there for value and if not then Check/Fold the flop.

      Though as played well, should be a clear Call there cause he could have worse Ax hands.

      Best Regards.

      (LOL, I couldn't remember my problem with that hand :f_confused: )

      I do think I probably did raise preflop because he is such a loose player, so it is both for value and to isolate from BB. Are these bad reasons?

      I think I posted the hand mainly because I wasn't sure what to do on the flop. Do I cbet or not? However, if you still think raising preflop is not a good play, and if I flat it, I suppose I just give up once I haven't hit? He had a very wide range...

      (btw, I did call. He had Q9s which is a pretty decent hand considering his range :f_biggrin: )

      Yeah, it's fine though being OOP you should raise it bigger.

      If we assume he is super-loose then CBetting flop is still fine. Though as you must understand that actually this might be one of those boards which we rather want to skip the CB. Cause a lot of hands continue here as SCs/broadways/etc.
