      SB: 104.2 BB (VPIP: 33.22, PFR: 26.82, 3Bet Preflop: 12.04, Hands: 591)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:club: Q:heart:

      fold, MP raises to 3 BB, fold, Hero raises to 9 BB, fold, fold, MP calls 6 BB

      Flop: (19.5 BB, 2 players) T:spade: 7:spade: 9:club:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (19.5 BB, 2 players) 4:spade:
      MP bets 14.62 BB, Hero calls 14.62 BB

      River: (48.74 BB, 2 players) 3:club:
      MP bets 36.54 BB, Hero calls 36.54 BB

      MP shows A:club: Q:diamond: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 30%, Flop 16%, Turn 7%)
      Hero shows Q:club: Q:heart: (One Pair, Queens) (Pre 70%, Flop 84%, Turn 93%)
      Hero wins 115.82 BB



      He called 3bet with AA, QQ, 88, 44, AKs, A7s, QTo, AQo. 98s.
      He folds to 3bet 69%. Call cbet 67%, turn calls 50%, raises 11%, river raise 1/2 call 1/2.


      I almost never check back in 3bet pot with overpair, but this board was so ugly, he hits sets often, and we are deep, he could have easily KK+ here, and he is very aggro, could call once and raise turn, so I would have to fold given that we are deep. So I wanted to underrepresent my hand, and let him bet (with weaker for value or bluff) or I would bet myself.

      Is there a solution for pokertracker4 when I post hand there is a new option for spoiler. I see that it posts [spoiler] and it doesnt work because it should be [SPOILER]? Is it possible that pokerstrategy adjusts to it?

      Hey,

      I like your play quite a bit. There are 2 problems with cbetting here imo.. One you mentioned yourself: it hits his range quite well.. The second one is that it doesn't hit OUR range that well. I would definitely 3bet quite wide against this player IP, since he calls and we play postflop IP.

      QQ usually turns into one of the best bluffcatchers or a decent thin value hand depending on whether you want to vbet or check back. My personal range is as such that QQ becomes a better check back than bet. People go crazy when someone checks back in a 3bet pot plus I would actually check to give up often, so I need good bluffcatchers in my range not just air.

      After the check back, bluffactching the turn and river is perfect ofc. He will vbet weaker than QQ imo but he will most important try to make you fold your Tx, 9x, never expecting you to have QQ here.

      @PT4 question: I'm sorry but I use HM2. Do you have the option to export for PokerStrategy forum, not just standard forum?

      It is just standard forum option. There is also option hide results, and I guess results for forum are not important

      Yes, just hide results initially. In some cases we can discuss villain's tendencies if we know his hand but that can be added only at specific times. In general it's best to not know what your opponent had in the hand to keep the analysis neutral when it comes to results.
