      Hey guys

      24/21/100h reg on BTN
      9% 3b
      3b btn 1/8
      2nd time vs hero
      cbet 70%
      40 w$sd

      Preflop is prob fine? 99+?

      What about the turn? I didn't saw many hand he'd check that flop with... QQ? AJ?

      On the river he bets big again and it's really polarizing . Only 77 makes sense for me :P

      I just fold pre flop, very hard to play this post flop oop and even worse with little info on villain.

      I can see him play like this KQ but his size on river makes me really suspicious.

      I agree that it's a fold preflop.

      You have to pay attention how much people 3bet vs that position a lot actually. Postflop, I think a good reg is capable of playing AA, KJ, AK and KQ like this. You basically never have better than KQ here probably. You are a bit unlikely to call that preflop, you sometimes lead turn with it so it's not that hard to value bet thinly with a big sizing. A7s, T7s type hands also make sense btw.

      Fold preflop and as played fold turn. He can vbet Jx, Kx, QQ, he plays rivers IP and almost no river is good for you. :)

      Yes I screwed this up :P

      Why fold 99? Just because we don't have position and there are too many bad flops?

      That and the fact that we are not even sure that villain is 3beting light enough in this spot. Even if we knew the villain really well and we know for a fact that he 3bets in this spot like 12% it still be a marginal call, really hard to play post flop.

      Mostly fold preflop because you don't know what is a good or bad flop for you and his tendencies. In order to make close calls you need information which you lack here imo. It's not about just your one hand anymore vs a reg, it's always your whole range. I think we've discussed this when you are the 3bettor: you want to 3bet wide enough that you can hit any boards, even against people that call so you have equity in all spots. The same goes for calling 3bets but it gets tougher, especially OOP.
