      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: We are quite deep here so I don't mind calling the 3-bet IP especially since he 3-bets a lot and we keep a lot of dominated hands in his range.

      Postflop he seems rather passive so do we know anything about his cbets? If he is really passive we can fold otherwise calling one street or even semibluffing flop is fine.

      flop cb:63, turn was no sample at the time.
      The fact that the CB size got bigger on the turn signals a warning for me: I'm not bluffing.

      The fact that a passive guy double barrels a blank in a 3-bet pot should signify strength :)

      Your fold on the turn is perfectly fine and the only question comes down to the flop call. I think that one street is fine because he can still bluff/semibluff and then ck/fold turn.

      I mean, that is why floating is better IP than raising CB, isnt it?
      We see what he does on the turn. ORWith a call, I represent a weak hand, so he can 2ndbarrel easily?...

      That's partially true. Floating is usually cheaper and a bit "safer" versus face up opponents like you would find at the lower limits.

      Raising is still a good option when you are also targeting a stronger part of his range (for example pairs).

      But in this particular case I don't think there's a lot of value in raising because the hands he would fold will most likely ck/fold the turn.
