      Ok, so it's an Anon Table. Not too much info on villain, he seemed a little weird and aggro by some of his sizings, and kept opening 4x from all positions, so I hadn't got to see many showdowns or post flop play from him as everyone was just folding to him. He probably viewed me as a standard TAG, I hadn't done anything too wacky. I wanted to bump up the pot pre-flop obviously especially versus his 4x open so I go to $2.60 (maybe that's a standard size considering his bet though?) and he flats.

      Not the greatest flop but I lead out for my standard 1/2 pot bet in 3-bet pots and he raises. Now if he had a set here, would he really raise on a pretty dry board? As I said, I don't have really any post flop reads on him so what's the best line here? Let me know what you think.

      Thanks

      hi.

      im not folding 120bb deep in a 3b pot thats for sure.

      1) Call:
      + Allows him to continue bluffing
      - you rep a made hand

      2) Click it back minreraise:
      + Allows you to rep a bluff
      - He may just shutdown and fold

      the more flop raising dynamic you have against him, the more i prefer clicking it back. i dont like making a huge 3bet on this dry flop.

      Ok thanks. I just snap shoved with maximum speed! Clicking it back would commit me anyway, right? He called and flipped over 45:diamond: which was great! Just wanted to check I didn't make a mistake.

      Cheers
