      Villain steals often so I attempted a light cbet. I flop top pair on a board which totally misses his range except overpairs and get raised. Should I automatically put him on a overpair here? I believe that half of the time he's bluffing here so I call, furthermore I have 5 outs to improve to two pair or trips. On the turn it was the same reasoning. River I intend to c/c a ridiculously small bet, otherwise c/f.

      Hello,

      Preflop, if we go for a 3bet, I'd make it $0.22.

      Postflop it depends on what we know about villain, but I'd just bet/fold the flop and don't put myself into tough spots, where we are only guessing and hoping our guesses to be right.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: Considering villain is short why do we 3-bet bluff him with a weak hand?

      I'd assume that short villains are a bit more fishy and call too much so I wouldn't 3-bet bluff with no information

      Postflop: As played I'd bet/fold the flop.

      You have no reason to believe that he can bluff here other than a guess. And while it's true that he would call some pairs certain players definitely raise PPs as well.

      If we had a big PP I'd never fold either because we then beat part of his value range as well and are not just hoping he is bluffing.
