      We're quite deep so I think calling preflop is not that bad.

      Usually pot bets on flop are weapon of bad players so I was actually thinking at that time I'm in front but c/r would be overplaying my TP since he might have KK, AA.

      Turn is great and I go for c/r. Was thinking how big to raise...in the end made "normal" raise. He snap calls and I don't have a clue what does he have. I'm hoping of AA, KK.

      River is an easy shove and c is not even an option because he won't fire for the third time after being c/r.

      Against this kind of player do we call next time his 3b with hands like this? Or is it better to 4b-shove with 100bb deep?

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: OOp and deeper I don't like to call 3-bets especially in spots where people don't 3-bet as light (as in steal/resteal). So I would play 4-bet or fold.

      As played I do agree with you that his pot bet is rarely the strongest hand even though we are slightly deep.

      Both river and turn look fine to me, well played.

      In the future we can start calling more 3-bets because we now know more about villain but I wouldn't be too quick to stack off lighter (because we know nothing about that part of his game).
