      560 hands, VPiP 24, PFR 19, fold to 3bet 74%, call 3/6 cbet, raise 1/6, fold 2/6

      Is my 3bet size ok ? I am not sure if it is 4bet cold, because he sqeezed limpers?
      I dont want to play it 4way so I have to 3bet. Is size ok IP?

      On flop I was confused, I thought he should be afraid of me having KK+ so I just call and let him bluff, I dont want to isolate against better with raise?

      Turn bet size ok? It was enough to have comfortable river shove, and he can still call light. It showed to be bad because action killer card arrived, but anyway when he checks I thought he gives up.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: He isolated the limpers so your raise is considered a 3-bet still.

      Postflop: As played what range do you think he has?

      It looks a lot like TT/JJ or even a weaker PP. I doubt he ever has Ax there given how tight his range is for calling preflop.

      So we can bet small on that river.

      Remember his action here, donk and ck/call, what hands do that?

      "Remember his action here, donk and ck/call, what hands do that?"

      Weaker than mine, as you said TT, JJ, or it makes sense with draws which he doesnt have here. KK, AA, he probably 4bets.
      But he would hardly play like that with Ax, maybe A9s but he hardly calls preflop 3bet with A9s. So how much would you bet river? is 1/3 pot ok? I think he would have trouble calling more?

      We only have 50 BB (1/2 pot) so we either shove or bet small to induce like 15-20bb.
