      Have 20 hands. He's playing 85/55. 3bet is 85.7% out of 7 opportunities. (Collection of min-3bets and all-in jams). He's not afraid to get the money in light, not sure whether that means he's ever launching a big over-bet donk-bluff on river.

      hello Wolfjustice

      moved your thread to the hand evaluation forum :)

      about the hand, i'd actually be more inclined to give him credit here. if his default is to play aggressively, and he does this a lot with air, then why is he playing so passively now? and on the river looks like he's desperate for you not to check behind if he goes for a check/raise..

      there is a lot of missed draws he could be bluffing and it isnt super likely he would slowplay strong hand on the turn with all those draws if he is 3betting that much a king isnt likely either but its hard to say what hes betsizing means when you havent played more with him.

      i think its close but i think i would look him up and see what hes betsizing means

      Hello Wolfjustice,

      You should have bet the flop & turn a bit bigger to protect your hand. Though as played I doubt that he is betting even K:cX this way but meanwhile he will have a lot of bluffs and missed draws in his range. Strong hands would have raised earlier. So call it down.

      Best Regards.
