      Villain was showing around 32/26, 14% 3b, 3.0 AF after couple of dozen hands.

      He was active in 3b-ing from blinds and ip. His cbet at flop is 100% but samples are rly small. No stat of cbet on T in 3b pot.

      My gameplan: My plan is to float flop and act accordingly to his turn action and turn card. I would raise all diamonds and bet vs his check trying to take the pot down.

      As played: He gives me great odds on turn so calling seems as best option here. River is pretty standard.

      -When we don't have stats/reads on an opponent do want to avoid these spots (pre & flop) and have at least a bit of EQ in our hand (like bdfd, PP, overcards etc). Main reason for this line is to try to fight his wide 3b range and find his post tendencies.

      -As played, mainly on turn and river, is it optimal?

      Thank you!

      1) I like your flop float. We need to combat wide ranges with wide ranges ourselves

      2) Not too sure how much I like bluff raising a diamond. If i floated the flop with something like AdQ or QdK then I would like it more. You shouldn't try to rep flushes without flush blockers in my opinion.

      3) On the TUrn I think you are too deep to bluff raise here. And I think KX never bet/folds anyway unless he's nitty. So call is good.

      4) River: Now shove, he doesn't put you on flushes too often.

      Overall I think you played the hand well. But don't just randomly raise diamonds. Especially when stacks are not that deep, and it's a 3bet pot. People won't necessarily bet/fold overpairs or TPTK in these spots. Maybe 200bb it would make more sense.
