      Villain is playing 11/9 with cbet on flop and turn 100/100 over 180 hands he is also stealing 43% on the SB on 7 cases.

      I felt I was trapping by the turn. On the river I felt I was loosing on any Ax two pair or straight. I felt he might be also bluffing with that sizing on the river given how weak I was throughout.

      Ideas?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: We can also 3-bet this as a bluff against a nittier player.

      Flop/turn: Calling a cbet is fine.

      River: I wouldn't expect a nit to 3-barrel bluff even in BvB scenario. On the river he either has AK+ or a rare bluff. I would simply fold with our weak A here (we might as well have 77 because it's the same thing).

      Thank you bodgan.


      I also thought of 3betting semibluffing the turn with Top pair and nut flush draw. What do you think of that line?
