      MP2 wins $16.86

      Villain is a std reg. F3B 68% 4bet 18%

      My plan was to move him off KK,QQ and stuff like QJs,JTs.

      Is this ok given that we didn't pick up any equity on the turn?

      Hey ChangNoi77,

      Why are you 3betting preflop? KQ may be a little weak to value-3bet in this spot vs a high-ish Ft3bet. It'd be fine to 3bet as a bluff so long as you felt you couldn't profitably flat call.

      Firing a cbet on this board will be fine. I don't think you should barrel though. Firstly villain will 4bet QQ/KK a lot pf. Even if he does have 2nd pair type hands he may likely fold them on the flop anyway seeing as he is OOP and will possibly have to face further action.

      Even if Jx and KK/QQ are in villains range, and he calls flop, they are just part of his range. He also has a nice selection of Ax, JJ, AJ, 66 etc. If he ever calls pf with KTs or QTs you beat these anyway so folding them out doesn't achieve too much. Check turn imo.
