      3bet stat over this sample odes not tell much but he is also agro preflop so maybe this is good call with suited KQ hanving fullstacked fish (most likely)?

      He is not too agro, so I do not bluff raise, but call with implied odds.

      Turn is interesting, now not sure what his cehck mean. IF we just assume he has strong cbet range, then we have not much fold equity on turn.
      So what do you do on turn?

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: I agree that we can call a 3-bet IP with KQs. It's a strong enough hand and his 3-bet isn't huge.

      Postflop: A close to pot cbet in a 3-bet pot is rarely a strong hand so we should take that into consideration on the turn when he checks to us. So I would also bet there and if he shoves it comes down to a math problem. We'd have to call roughly 15 to win 50 and we don't get the odds to bet/call.

      interestning point, did not think about that. But makes sense, because when they hit, they try to look weak and bet half pot.
