      Anon table.

      SB played 16/11 after 100 hands.

      He is repping narrow on the river, but I only split with Q2s/Q4s/Q6s/Q7s (which he probably wont have playing 16/11), and beat by anything else from his valuerange (AQ/55 are the most likely combos), plus I dont really see him bluffing in this spot... :)

      Hey pcfmcc02,

      Hand looks reasonable.

      The difficulty is that Q3 on a QQ5 is often not going to net you 3 streets of value.

      By the turn, the only thing villain can call with is specifically Ace high that floated the flop. Pockets pairs which may have called the flop are likely folding. The rest of the hands that call are better Qx and 55.

      It may be better in the long run to mix in a check on either flop or turn. 3 barreling will work in some situations though, vs aggressive opponents or calling stations.

      As played river fold to check/raise is fine. Villain is unlikely to be bluffing and you lose to his entire value range.
