      Playing LAG without a HUD.

      This is a pretty loose resteal, but. Well, no "but", it's pretty loose... lol.

      I think the CB is fine with a gut shot/backdoor flush, expecting a lot of folds here. Decided to barrel twice when the A came, to fold Qx, I think his range is rather weak after calling two streets (Qx being the best, sometimes AsXs). OTR he has to not feel comfortable with any of this unless he has a flush, so I think this is a profitable 3 barrel.

      OR is it just spew?

      Definitely spew. Why 3bet junk if he is a lag and likely to call IP? On the turn your up vs a huge part of his range in terms of ax, qx, straight draws and flush draws and you have 8 high, you shouldnt be betting here as even vs his draws your probably behind. Your OOP and he could easily be drawing and you need him to fold far to often with the river bet. I think in the long run your gonna be burning money with your turn and river bets.

      Hello,

      I don't really like how you played your hand.
      First preflop - I don't really like 3betting against a player who minraises on the button on NL2.

      This flop is very bad for cbetting.
      His range hits the board quite well and I expect to get called at least once.
      And since this is NL2 I don't really want to barrel as a bluff much.

      The turn is a good card to bet so I like betting.

      On the river I prefer check/folding since I don't really expect us to have much fold equity.

      Best,
      Plamen
