      Hi all,

      Stats:
      10/10/10h :P

      BB is nit.

      Preflop:
      Didn't know wheter I could 3B for value so I just called. Should have 3B right?

      Flop:
      This is spew right? Wanted to test him, also because his sizing was small. I don't think my 3B should be huge.

      Hi,

      PF: I think calling is good here without info. I wouldn't want to 3bet and be unsure of whether to 5bet or fold.

      I think it may be fine as an exploitative play (you know he cbets way too often and folds really often to raises) but I would not do it against a random guy.

      You should do it if there's a single club on the Flop, so if board was 3d 4d 6c I might consider checkraise bluffing this.

      I don't like calling Flop without any idea of his postflop tendencies and preflop opening ranges. In general with less info, just stick to the aggressive option so it is easier to play and you have control of the hand.

      Turn: I would bluff on diamonds, and I think 7 is a decent card to bluff too since you can rep 5X. However it brings another flush draw and I just think you rep way too many semi bluffs or bluffs so I think giving up is fine.
