      I 3bet him as bluff, because he folds to 3bet 80% and 4bets 0. If I get called I plan to give up. Is it ok to bet turn with draw? And bet size on river? Maybe shove to get called from slowplayed sets, or overpairs who think I am bluffing?

      Question about my 3betting range: I noticed that in NL50 I cant 3bet profitable as bluff vs reggs, because they 4bet often, or call and then raise me on flop or turn. So I 3bet vs them only JJ+, AK, and even call when they are MP or EP with JJ-KK, AK, AQ to get sqeezed, or play postflop because they barrel a lot. Then because I 3bet vs them with only value hands, I 3bet as bluff versus people like this one, because I want my 3bet stat to increase and that it looks like I have wide range. Are the reggs going to see my increased 3bet percantage and think I am 3betting e.g 10%, but actually against them 3%? Also some days I 3bet wide, and some days not to confuse them. Is it ok?

      Regarding the hand, I think the 3bet preflop is good, same going for the give up postflop when you flop nothing. When you turn the OESD I think bluffing to make him fold some small pairs and air (by betting turn and river though) is OK but your sizing is too small. The board texture allows for many draws and you are representing either hitting 78s, 87s on the turn or a fancy played overpair, both of which would bet bigger.

      @Question: If you get 4bet often, you can start 3bet/5betting a wider range for thin value. Usually you just want to 3bet reasonably wide with an undefined range, that's what I do. What you do can also work though. Calling vs strong opening positions with your premiums is OK, you hardly get value and your flatting range is very weak if you don't flat good hands some of the times.

      Regarding having a small pure value 3bet against some and a crazier 3bet frequency against people that fold: that's the way to do it imo. Don't have a complete standard. Against most people you want an undefined range (all types of hands) but not necessarily too wide, while against some you can just go bonkers. The only thing is to be aware of your own image against regulars that you play differently.
