      I 3-bet this pre as a bluff, Is this a reasonable line? I'm blocking an ace and I have straight and flush possibilities if I'm called. Should I have had a stab at the post-flop play at any point? I thought a flop cbet was thin as I have no equity and plenty of draws will call. Whould a turn cbet have been a waste of money? I can rep the queen and the flush I guess...

      Hi Red,

      Preflop: Since we are -3betting OOP we should make this bigger preflop. You are not even making the raise 9 BB. It's in fact only 8.5 BB so villain will call you with a wide range, especially since you guys are super deep. So in this case I would 3-bet to at least 24c (because of how deep we are). Normally OOp we can 3-bet 10-12 x BB.

      Postflop: As played we can take one stab at the pot and then let it go. There are plenty of hands that can fold given how small we 3-bet preflop.
