      250 hands, 33/27 3bet 15, fold to 3bet 70. call cbet 3/3 flop, turn raise 1/2, call 1/2

      Is it ok line against people who float a lot in 3bet pots IP, to cbet, check call turn and shove river?
      Because on turn I check to get max value from floaters, and river shove to get value from weaker hands.

      How to play against this guy in future, since we see that he calls river with A high and floats? Is it ok to 3bet him with AJ+, KQ, and check fold when I miss and play this line when I hit?

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think your line is fine an maximizes value versus his bluff range. His value range will go broke here almost always anyway.

      In the future I'd still stay away from making too many fast adjustments based on one hand. Keep in mind that the river brings a second pair so he may have called A high because he was afraid you'd push him off a split. I doubt that he would call the same on a 7d river.

      What we can adjust though is to not cbet hands that we cannot continue with because he clearly floats lighter and we should also look at valuebetting thinner and taking more ck/call lines on the turn.
