      After the small turn bet I did not expect him to have many strong hands in his range. Is this a good assumption to go on? My logic is that he should be fairly aware of the possible draws and would like to protect his hand pretty aggressively.

      What reads would you get from this hand?

      Hi.

      1) what bluffing range do u put him on?
      2) is qq at the top or bottom of your turn cc range?
      3) do u think he calls light on flop in 3way?
      4) u block many floats with your hand.

      Hi,

      1) I think he could be bluffing all gutshots this way or Ax
      2) Atm QQ are at the top of my xx range, especially vs a guy like him.
      3) Have no idea if he changes his calling range 3 way or HU. My guess would be that after CO folds it's not that different to him.
      4) Yeah, you're right.

      2) Are you betting KT and KQ on the Turn? Do you think you have 3 streets of value? Anyway personally I would c/c those hands on the Turn so if I wanted to bluff catch the River I would c/c River with those and fold QQ here,

      3) He has low Fold to Flop bet so that favours your turn c/c here. But I still think even though other guy folds to him, you did cbet into 2 players on a double broadway board. You are going to be perceived to have at least something here. Unless you are the type of player to cbet 100% of your range. But I think you should be check/folding many of your pocketpairs here pretty often.

      1) Point 3 reduces his bluffing range significantly.
