      opponent was a competent vpip20/ pfr 21 tag opponent, 58%button raise, 50% f3b(4 sample) 50% fold to cbet, 32%AG, 30%WTSD over 142 hand sample

      After calling the 3bet, I put him on mostly middle pairs and broadways, possibly some suited connectors, I decided that it would be hard to get value from worse, had a plan of checkcalling 2 streets and folding to a river bet. (I thought he could possibly bluff 2 streets after checking, but dont have solid enough read

      is this plan ok?? do i need better reads to be able to pull this move of?
      would a standard cbet been better?

      Form a plan and stick to it once you check.

      Is that plan good in the first place? I think it is reasonable - My assumption here is that the average NL10 player has no balls to 3 barrel bluff here so I think c/c twice and folding river seems like a reasonable play.

      Maybe you might need better reads to play this spot but I think my basic assumption here about the average player should be reasonable enough - We do know his VPIP PFR and that kind of indicates that he is a TAG (which are less likely to 3barrel than LAGs)

      thx again! advice much appreciated
      just wondering I would probably fold my entire range to a reasonable river bet, should is there a need to balance with my Ak/sets against better opponents?
