      it looked like a bluff or a queen, he is aggressive so I think he could bet on river like this with nothing or with Qx. He didn't bluff on flop because he could think I am slowplaying because it is great situation for CB but I thought that he wouldn't give up so easily, so I would check raise on flop but he checked. On turn he wouldn't bluff because it would look like a bluff...

      Hi Ezeras,

      Preflop: Our 3-bet looks like a bluff however I'd make all my 3-bets here 10-12 BB.

      Flop: Why are we checking this flop? We should cbet this after 3-betting preflop and potentially firing the turn (against people that call a lot).

      As played I'd fold the river. He can valuebet a Qx and maybe even TT/JJ. IF he wanted to bluff he'd bet earlier, most people do anyway.
