      Hey All!

      Villain: Kinda unknown. His stack looks fishy but his stats seems normal over 15-20 hands.

      Preflop:
      What do you guys think about these small 3bets? Mostly nuthands which want you to call? That's how I feel about it but I'm not sure wheter I should. I did call, I can't lay down such a pretty hand... What range would u call? Like any hand exept for ATo, KTo, KJo, QTo, QJo? So call any suited hand and AJ+, QK+? And yeah PP obv.

      Flop:
      We flop a GS with two overs. What should be our plan when he bets? I was rlyyyy thinking hard about this spot but couldn't come up with a good answer. Since I think people's small 3bets vs MP are mostly strong I'd probably check/fold though. How would 1 club on the flop affect your thoughts?

      Turn:
      He could easily have checked AQ/AK on the flop so I have to bet here I guess?

      River:
      If he called my turnbet quickly I would have check/fold a blank river and continue betting any hit. If he would think OTT for a while I'd probably still continue with another 2/3th potbet.

      Hi. Preflop is so dependent on player but this is pretty much fhe best hand u can defend vs a three bet with.

      Dont think he bluff raises turn so i wont fight back. I wouldnt mind barreling river if he calls, but again this is a player dependent spot. Would he herocall ak high here? Would he call once and fold? Does he have 9x here and would he call twice? :f_frown:

      Yep it's a really tough spot I agree.

      Questions:
      - What would u call preflop?
      - What would you do vs a flop CB?
      - What would you do on the river if you had to pick something?

      Tnx

      Okay thanks. You would float ones because he could have AK/AQ and you think he's giving up the turn?

      With riveraction I ment: What would you do in this spot after he calls turn (just an assumption)? Do you continue bluffing? When, when not?

      Yes.

      And i would bluff river too with a 2/3 pot bet. I likr thr aggro options and if u fail u create some aggro dynamic anyway and gain some reads.
