      We dont know much about him yet, but against MSS even 3bet(/fold) could be fine. He openraises a lot, but due to his stacksize it's hard for him to adapt to 3bets. He cant really call, basically have to risk his whole stack everytime, or just fold.

      As played, flop is close, we dont have the A, and we dont rep much anyway, plus dont have much room to play further streets due to stacksize. So we are hoping that he folds right away...
      After we turned the nuts :) , I'd just bet for value.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      If you go for Check/Raise then why not just barrel the turn for value? If he calls us on the flop it may likely be that he has Kx or even FD which are willing to pay. Though if you got for a Check you basically just allow him to Check behind in those spots and quite obviously ain't bluffing the river.

      Check/Raising will make all his Kx hands to fold cause you clearly ain't bluffing this way.

      Best Regards.
