      River: ($4.73, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      UTG bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00

      Preflop: Raiser is a fish, has showed aggression so far on river with bluffs.
      I 3bet to isolate fish. And get a call from him.

      Flop: On flop I hit my A, but looking at villains stats they say that he is almost always folding to Cbet (>80%), although he is Cbetting himself almost always.(>80%). Given the circumstances that he checked to me I assume that he does not have a range to continue, nor the flush. A check to induce some bluff on later street or let him catch something I can get value from.

      Turn: Although it hits flush I will be carefull, but more inclined on getting value from Kx, 5x, JT hands.

      River: Bet on river is suspicious, but given the history, I call to see Kx, A7-A5,A2,TJ as a value.

      Hi Ilioas,

      Preflop: Villain is fishy so our 3-bet is mostly for thin value. I would add 1 BB given that we are 127 BB effective.

      Postflop: The sample is not huge so that 80% fold to cbet is most likely over just 5 hands (I'd assume) so I still think we have a 1/2 pot bet there. If you give him a range of all Ax and pairs that's enough of a calling range to warrant a cbet (plus FDs).

      As played river is a call given the odds and line. He can have draws that turn into a bluff or weaker hands betting.
