      I 3bet big becuase of a loose recreational player OTB.

      What range do you asses to the reg? I usually expect him to have AQ and mid pocket pairs as a starting point and usually add anything else if I see.

      If this is true I think flop should be a bet/fold as he is not raising anything worse for value and he is also not having possible bluff in his range.

      After he chooses to not raise flop I believe that he either has some medium strength value hand against which I am not likely to get my 3 streets of value, a float (with what? ) or a draw. This is why I chose the x/shove line ott.

      What is worse that calls your turn check/shove? Turning your hand into a bluff?! Maybe you can get KJ to fold, maybe...

      Anything wrong with betting turn?

      Turn checkraises are mostly to punish wide floating ranges on the flop. I dont think that is applicable here as his cc range is narrow. Then again, i dont see too many worse hands calling 3 streets.

      I guess il just bet thrice and hope for KQ.
