      Hero wins 0 BB
      UTG wins 337.7 BB

      I bet bit smaller than half, because they bluff raise so often, and If they call with weaker hand or draw even better. But then turn I thought he might bluff again and I push so maybe he makes mistake and calls, and if he has set or flush I lose anyway on river.
      Could I fold here? even if I would bet large flop, still he would raise me, and I think same result.

      Hi Mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Considering we are deep here we can make all our 3-bets larger by default (we made this less than 3x).

      Flop: If you know that villain can be induced to raise (which is what I'm understanding from your comments) then I like the bet small/call.

      However on the turn our logic may not make 100% sense.

      If the guy is bluffing or betting flush/set when we shove we only get called by the better hands. Bluffing implies that villain doesn't have a hand that can call.

      Now if you think villain can raise KQ/KJ or other semibluffs with let's say Qc/Jc then it's a different story and we can ship it (and I think that if he rasied flop with those he can bet/call here).
