      Anon. table Forgot to write down the stats of villain, but he was smth. like 19/16 over 50-60 hands

      On this flop, can i go for 3 streets of value in this positions? He might be calling OOP with smth. like TT-QQ,AQs,AK. So i can get 3 streets only from 3 combos AQs?

      I decided that i want 2 streets of value, but i think bet/check/bet(call) is a better line?

      Hi Achilles,

      Even if you decide you only want to streets of value we should bet this flop.

      There are plenty of worse hands that can call including Qx and JJ maybe even some Tx.

      Considering he is UTG he usually has QK/AQ, TT+, some AK.

      Also, do you only expect villain to call AQs, and why?

      As played what's villain range on that river given the bigger bet size?

      Because he was looking like TAG, i expect strong range to call OOP. Smth like TT+, AQs+,AK. (not all QQ+/AK). Checking the flop was a mistake. I was scared of a ch/r :facepalm: and that`s why i checked the flop. I know it`s a bad reason to check...

      The big river bet looks very strong, but i thought i can`t fold after underrepresenting my hand so much.
