      Villain is 21/17 reg (2.5k hands) who loves to 3 bet ... esp. vs. a nit like me. Relevant stats:

      3b: 10.2%
      3b in BB vs. MP: 12% (51)
      3b in BB vs. MP Hero: 17% (6)

      More stats if needed. I feel like flatting here is an option pre ofc, but since I've been 4-betting him more lightly recently I feel like he'd min 5b bluff or call 4b here lighter than usual and being this deep.

      Flop is std I think, and his calling range maybe 99-KK, AK, KQs. What do you think about turn betting size? I am rarely in this situation this deep so just went kind of small for value against AK mostly; though I am not sure if this is logical.

      The river donk just totally felt like value, at least KK/99(if he has this). But I just thought there are so few combos of these and maybe he does this with AK (though only 6 combos)? Though I doubt it since I am rarely betting turn w QQ or weaker Kx.

      What would you do differently?

      Hi Ains,

      Preflop: We are deeper so I'd prefer a larger 4-bet here to begin with.

      Postflop: As played I do agree that his river bet looks like value however he could play like that with a Kx hand and thus "block betting" the river. We will rarely raise him there without the nuts so he may want to dictate how much money goes in.

      So I would call there as well and I don't see value in raising.
