      Yep, it was not good board for bluff for villain.

      So, if get called, he had Ax good hand.

      So, should I give up turn? after my secound barrel, I could only barrel river to make him scare AK,AQ or some hands.. However, he is not tight opponent..

      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: I think that our 3-bet for isolation is a bit loose here considering our kicker and the fact that villain will call a lot of Ax hands.

      So because of that I prefer to just call and play postflop.

      Postflop: As played I think we are definitely overplaying our hand.

      What ranges can call 3 streets like this that don't include some sort of Ax?

      And we only beat A4 so we might as well have KK here. Would you 3-barrel KK?

      I would prefer a 1/2 flop and possibly turn and check/fold river.

      However, I sticked to this hand because I paid too much on this pot..

      Yes, unfortunately we put way too much money in here.

      Always look at the players involved before you take the action preflop (unless you meant to isolate light OOP with A5s).
