      How standard is my cbet here with bdfd? He has 1/1 raisecbet on very small sample so far. He looks like a reg, no better info.

      I'm not sure about my cbet. If he is always playing back Ax it's bad right? Obv I can barrel lot of turns etc but his range is full of mid PP too.

      Ow I also was considering floating or raising his check/raise because he would pbb just call midPP and could x/raise Ax as bluff so only KK+ or sth makes sense and normally I don't rly give unknown credit for not 4betting it. So would u play back and in what way?

      Hey Farmarchist,

      We are lacking all the crucial info required to analyse this situation.

      First it's really relevant with which range he reaches the flop. You can use a combination of Ft3bet and 4bet-range for this, along with PFR from MP.

      Given no information I'd assume that MP is very strong when he flats 3bet OOP. If you thought he was a fish you wouldn't be 3betting J9s in the first place. He can have a bunch of big pairs that he slowplayed + some strong Ax. He may also extend his PP range slightly since you are slightly deep.

      Vs this range I'd just give up immediately on the flop. I don't see any sense in barreling into a strong range even with a back-door. Even if villain raises flop very often, if it's in a spot where he gets to the flop only with a tight range, that stat loses a lot of its meaning.
