      I just moved from Ipoker to pokerstars as I realised that ipoker is not supported back in my country for the xmas vacations, so no solid reads/stats on players.

      3bet there I feel a bad spot?

      Also on the river should I be overbetting to get AK, trips to let go.

      Can he let go there?

      Or is checking behind a good line with a considerable showdown value?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: This 3-bet preflop is a mostly a bluff vs unknown so I don't like turning such a nice hand into a bluff.

      As played I would bet/fold this flop against unknown. Why are we calling there?
