      Same villain as last hand. 21/14, F to 3bet 59%. Cbets 75%. Because he does not seem to fold to 3bets a lot, a prefer the preflop call. Then I check raise the flop because he seems to be Cbetting a lot.


      Thanks in advance.

      Hi MoneyStef,

      Preflop: Against a guy that doesn't fold much to 3-bets we can expend our value range but we can also bluff with hands that aren't as easily dominated and still have playability.

      It would also be important to check how often he folds to cbets (in both SRP and 3-bet pots). A lot of people at the lower limits call a lot and still fold a lot to cbets.

      So I would look at 3-betting this preflop.

      Postflop: As played I don't mind our raise here (however we have to fold to a reraise so if we expect one often we should just call), but I dislike our raise size. Why do we raise so small?

      Would you ever raise that small for value here? How do you think villain reacts to this raise with hands that are bluffcathers or maybe semibluffs? How would you react in his shoes?
