      29/24 36% agg. freq., 33% fold to 3bet (3), 72 hands

      I wasn`t sure what to do OTR. I block most of the flushes, but i can`t see weaker hand calling a shove. He still can have some flushes, some Jx and 66. Maybe some combos QQ and KK. So i was probably going to ch/f. If the river was blank, then shove?

      I mix checking flop with cbetting here depending on how cally I've seen my opponent so far. Keep in mind that lose raise/callers vs 3bets have many hands like AJ, KJ, QJ, JT, KQ, QT and some pocket pairs. I emphasize on the many Jx combos in his range which is why cbetting without getting called by floats and weaker hands becomes a bit marginal, especially when you barrel because you barrel into a stronger and stronger range.

      AA is not always a bet/bet/shove for me on QQx, JJx, KKx after I 3bet pre against a lot of people so I either check flop or turn, not much river because I expect people to not double float 3bet pots so they have next to no air for me to check/call against.
