      I call only because we are deep, and he raised bigger so I thought it is AK, QQ+. I float because he cbets turn 50%. IS it ok ch turn call river on non A or K?

      Hey Gingerkid,

      You need to have a clear idea of why you are calling. On one hand you are saying you call because villain's range is very tight, but on the other hand you proceed to float the flop.

      In this particular case the stacks are not quite deep enough to set-mine vs this slightly larger 3bet. However since it looks as if villain may have some light hands in an 8% 3bet range it is going to be ok to expand your defending range. Personally I would not include 66 in this range, I would use hands that are going to have better equity + playability postfop, such as suited broadways. 8% is wide but not hugely exploitable or anything.

      Assuming villain has a high flop-cbet in 3bet pots and a low turn-cbet floating flop will be fine. I usually like to bet the turn very small for protection hoping to induce action from any hand with 6 overcards and/or flush-draw.

      Villains river bet + sizing is very rarely a bluff and I don't really see what you beat.
