      Hello.

      Villian is 26/14 26% AFq and he folds to cb 21% of the time over 300 hands. The interesting about him is that he raises cb 69% of the time (19).
      I did 3bet him on the flop twice and he folded.

      I'm not really sure about here. Maybe the fact that we were 200bb deep stopped me from 3betting and also I do have some backdoors.

      So call flop and call turn according to his big c/r is fine I guess and I was planning to call the river.

      The river gives me trips and he checks. I think, value betting here is fine, and my plan was to bet/fold and I think I can make it a litte bit bigger - like $13-$14.

      I like your play this deep, and against this particular opponent.

      69% raise cbet is sick, we cant fold TPTK vs him, not even on such an ugly board (which at the same time is great for him to play back at us, again), plus as you wrote we have A for backdoor and blocker vs flushdraws.

      Also I agree, that 3bet/broke would be an overplay 200bb deep.

      River is a clear vbet, also like the sizing against JT/9T, maybe even worse. QT/QK could call a bigger one, but those are few combos, and maybe he would bet those himself.

      Edit: any J:hX are also part of his range, which could call a halfpot bet on the river.

      Hey,

      Noticed a little leak. Pre flop when deeper I think we should be going a little bit bigger to improve further stack to pot ratio.

      As played turn 3bet would be criminal as he can put pressure on with 2 pairs and draws and 3bet folding vs such a maniac would be a big shame.

      On the turn I would call and on the river I would ofc bet too. I think sizing is good and we can get KJ/J10 hands that were semi bluffing the flop to call as there is a missed draw and well, everybody has a missed draw dont they ;)

      So what about 3bb then? Or 3.5bb? I recently started to change my sizing and I do make it like that in order to need less fold equity.

      What if we were 150bb deep?

      Hey,

      Generally when I get over 130bb I start making it a little bigger, i.e if I min raise the button I will start 3x, if i 2.5x the cut of I will 3x. If players are very aggressive then I keep the same sizings so I can call more 3bets and play in deep pots in position.

      200bbs I think we should 3x from everywhere if possible.

      Like I said it is just a little tiny thing, but could pay great dividends.
