      Hey gxtwo,

      Preflop is fine. Value 3bet is also an option if villain has a low Ft3bet.

      Flop - I don't understand your check-raise here unless you have some crazy dynamic going with villain. You are isolating yourself vs better hands a lot. I'd check/call flop.

      On the turn what worse hands do you think villain is jamming? With no reads I wouldn't ever assume he has AJ, or QJ/QT. I'd expect to see KK/AA/77/AK. Only if I'd seen villain make some really questionable plays in the past 146 hands would I want to stack off here.

      No specific reads on villain. I felt he has way more weaker Ax in his range and I thought I was raising for value?

      Or do I just isolate myself here a lot? Personally I think I just snap fold my Ax if I was villain on flop. So probably way overplayed?

      What line would you take here? Can we x/c 3streets if T+R are blanks

      I think you isolate yourself vs worse hands a lot.

      The line you take really depends on villain.

      Vs low cbet donk flop. Vs high cbet c/c flop

      Vs high turn cbet c/c turn, vs low turn cbet donk turn.

      c/c flop donk turn is much more effective at extracting value from worse Ax, Kx, and gutshots than check/raise flop.

      As to whether you can call 3barrels, it depends on villain and board texture. Some villains will not fire 3 without AK+ 2pair or better. If villain bluffs a lot, the board stills needs to run out in such a way that it makes sense for him to 3barrel. I.e helpful if turn card puts out a flush-draw or a straight-draw which he might barrel after he turns equity.
