      Player is LAG with a 3bet of 16.7%.

      Is the flop call ok?

      Turn I feel if I am ahead on the flop I am still on the turn.

      River doesnt change much, as he is LAG I let him bet and I call.

      Hi Nick,

      I call it a fish (aggressive sub-species) :) You call it a LAG. Whatever, although I think my definition is closer to the truth.

      On subject:
      • What did you put him on, a weaker king?
      • What is his cold-call? Can he call with small kings preflop? It doesn't seem like a LAG to me, LAG would raise or fold them.
      • Is there anything else you know about him apart from 3-bet? (which is kinda irrelevant here). Something like postflop aggression %. What about the sample size for 3-bet?

      Best regards,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I'd bet $0.3 on the flop and when he raises the flop I like calling here but what's your plan for the later streets?

      I think that once you call, calling down is fine.

      My plan after he 3bets on flop is to call it down.

      I know he will be 3bet his AK and 99s most of the times preflop.

      I feel I will be ahead enough times to be profitable by c/calling two streets as long as the board doesnt change significantly.
