      should i have just folded this preflop? i think it's too strong to 3bet as a bluff but it's still on the weaker side of my flatting range i guess..

      on the flop maybe it's a fold but i decided i'd float since i think he's cbetting always here and then i hit.. so i just bet for value on the turn and river. is the river bet okay? or should i just check back? i think he can call with KQ/AK/AQ... once he raises it looks like im screwed.

      Why would you fold flop? U hav a double gutter.

      As played his line doesnt make too much sense as a value hand. If hes straight forward and passive ill fols. If he is a spazzy player ill call. Very player depensent spot.

      He reps nothing but a flush

      i agree but i also think he reps pocket 99 as well since i see people missing out on value bets when draws hit. instead they go into check/call mode. then he hits his FH on the river and gets it in.
