      I know it it was pretty foolish to 3-bet such a player OOP, was quite in tilt. Betting flop was okay I guess and I had decent pot odds calling a turn bet. But the question here is, that is it profitable to make bluff check-rise in such spot? I could represent Qx type of hand and his smallbets made it look like he definitely has something like 77-JJ or made a missed FD with AK/AJ of clubs. And also was my 3-bet sizing in river too small to make him fold pocket pairs?

      Hello,

      First of all, I don't like the 3bet here. I'd be more inclined to 3bet with some blockers, and also your sizing is very weak - make it $1.3 instead.

      I don't mind cbetting on the flop as long as you are planning to bet some turn cards that are good to bluff and improve our equity.

      So, considering that the 7 gives us OESD and we do have some fold equity I'd go ahead and bet myself here.

      As played, I'd just check/fold on the river. Don't really think we will generate too much FE in this spot, considering our line on the previous streets.

      Best,
      Plamen
