      I get really angry when this kind of thing happens. Villain openraies with a VERY wide range, I call with a decent looking hand, flopping nothing, and villain CBets...
      Just because I miss, does that mean that villain hits? I mean, I'm ahead preflop, as soon as I miss, ch/f vs a VERY-VERY wide range? I just can not fold it, I'm simply ahead too many times. In my head goes: HE HAS A WIDE RANGE, JUST BECAUSE I MISS, it doesnt mean he hits. He misses also 2/3 of the times, not just me. And sure enough, he improves his 3 outer...(T gives me straight)
      Does the tilt protect my weakness of handreading? I mean, it's really hard to imagine someone 3barreling a weaker hand than K-high

      Hello,

      How much does he folds against a 3bet? Usually we can 3bet here rather than play this hand OOP.

      On the flop it is an interesting spot.
      Obviously, 60% cbet isn't too much so we can't really expect villain to mindlessly barrel here.
      I don't really like calling here since we are OOP, we just have a gutshot and villain tends to bet the turn a lot.
      I think we can raise here if we want to play back at him since we can make him fold better hands and also still have some equity if we get called.

      As played, I would just fold the turn.

      Calling the river is a big spew here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      His Fto3b is 64%. That would incline me to semibluff or valu3bet here, and KJ just isnt strong enough imo for value, and not a semibluffing hand... only SCs, and suited Axs, Kxs is semibluffing hand I think.

      Yeah, I may x/r too rarely. This is a good spot, because a)it's dry b)we have Gs c)villain's range is wide?

      Well, against a 64% fold to 3bet I would be a little bit more inclined to 3bet here.
      We can take the pot right there, which is nice, also we can definitely get called by worse.
