      vs this guy



      I chose not to 3bet pre because of his high F3bet as I thought he is very likely to play 4bet/fold.

      I would fold the turn here. We only beat lower PPs and a draw. Considering his AF he might even bluff the river with a missed draw and I would never call a 3rd barrel against an UTG LAG with a 2nd pair with the K on the board.

      Preflop: Good, no other option imo.

      I understand what you're thinking postflop but I would also lay down the turn. I think this board isn't great to barrel and anyone knows that. We would also have to call the river and that is getting pretty expensive.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Even though your play might be reasonable but you are definitely picking one of the worst boards to do that. His range contains a lot of Kx hands, therefore rather willing to fold the turn instead.

      Best Regards.

      I think this board is not good to barrel if you know your opponent is not 3betting AK pre.

      But I agree with you guys, I think this opponent is not barreling without equity which means that we should be folding on the turn.
