      villain was playing 60/20 in 62 hands. Loved min 3betting me pretty much every time i opened. I had a hard time folding to his river raise. Wasn't too sure what he was trying to represent by checking both turn and river. Thought he could play as he did with an Ax hand trying to push me off .Turned out he flopped quad 8's

      Hi DrRaab,

      Preflop: Since he min 3-bets you a lot I'd recommend opening for less so we keep the pot smaller preflop.

      Postflop: I'd play bet/fold without reads. On the river he represents some backdoor flushes (very few), slowplayed hands (AA/88/A8 possibly 22). If he's also been crazy postflop in those 62 hands then I wouldn't be folding.
