      HERO?

      PRE
      Reasonable spot to 3B bluff. Villain seemed rather active.

      FLOP
      I think, it`s better to c/f here. PP`s are not folding, maybe even AQ calls.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Unless he is opening really wide from MP over a larger sample, I usually prefer to fold here.

      Flop: KXX and AXX are the best flops to cbet bluff on. I definitely think he would fold some pocket pairs. If he does not fold pocketpairs on this flop, then which flops would he ever fold on?

      Thanks.

      I think it`s much easier for villain to call on such flops with pocket pairs.
      And, therefore, I think, I don`t have much FE.

      If he does not fold pocketpairs on this flop, then which flops would he ever fold on?

      E.g. K92r

      There's a difference between K33 and KK3.

      On KK3, it is 1/3 less likely for you to have AK with 2 Kings on the board. On K33, there is virtually no difference between that and K93. Your perceived 3b range is mostly AK and JJ-AA, so I don't think the 9 matters at all.

      If he folds K93, he should fold on K33 too. Unless he thinks your preflop 3b range contains many 9X hands, then he should fold 88/77/66 type of hands.

      I don`t expect him to think at all about my perceived 3-bet range.

      It`s easier for him to call with 2nd pair, rather than 3rd.

      Well if u were to assume that they were really simple minded they just put u on AK or a big pocket pair and if a or k hits the flop they just fold. At least thats how i think most simpleminded players play, those who know how to handread a little but arent too good.

      Of course with the super huge whale calling stations thats a different matter altogether
      Thanks.
