      River: ($4.65, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero bets $2.90, fold

      Hero wins $4.42

      KQo is in my 3bet bluff range so here vs an CO opener I make a 3bet.

      3bet calling range from position could be a little wider than normal, but still pacled with Ax and TT+
      flop is wet and it hits a lot villains range. So my plan is to CHK/Fold flop.

      Turn: After he checks back, it does not look he has Ax hand or it is with low kicker. And my 3bet range still most likely has AK,AQ, AJ hands.
      So I plan on betting the turn and betting the river.
      Bet sizing now is on a larger scale.

      River: flush card is not the best card, but I guess villain will have plenty of one,two pair hands, straights, KK,QQ that will fold to river bet.
      Bet sizing was supposed to be a pure value bet. Not too big but not too small to induce loose calling with worse than flush.
      Against a shove I would fold then.

      Hi Ilioas,

      Preflop: When we 3-bet OOP we should add more Bbs to our raise. 10-12 BB would be my standard.

      Postflop: Since we raised smaller his calling range should be wider.

      The board hits our perceived range somewhat and we should bet/fold the flop.

      As played I like your bet size on both streets and your thought process. Some villains will be call happy in this spot but if he ends up calling light we make a note and value bet only next time.
