      He seems to have rather strong range in 3-bet pots, and he rarely folds to a cbet. So I would try once, and then go for ch/x. If he calls that flop his range is rather strong.

      Hey Skullqueen,

      3bet preflop for value is fine.

      Cbetting flop wouldn't make sense on its own. Looking at villain's Ftcbet in 3bet pots, it suggests he is floating a lot of hands on the flop. Your hand is too weak to value bet, and you won't get enough folds to use it as a bluff.

      However so long as you were committed to firing most turn cards your flop cbet is ok. It is unnecessary to 2barrel here though and in practice I recommend you just check the flop seeing as it will be lower variance.

      Fold vs turn raise is correct seeing as you don't have the odds to call.
