      He called 3bets with 88,99, 55, AQ, J9s (pt4 notes), folds to sqeeze 60%.
      calls cbet 40%, raise 20%, fold 40% flop, turn call 1/3, raise 1/3, fold 1/3

      I 3bet because bu steals 60% and fold to sqeeze 80%. SB is not that easy, but I think I can play profitable IP versus him. Probably not good hand to 3bet

      I check back because I cant represent much and plan to give up turn, and he has wide range, and is able to spew, bluff raise a lot.

      On turn maybe raise? Anyway I think he also doesnt hit the board,since I people rarely call OOP small PP, and he could have so many overcards, so I planned to bluff river If I miss.

      1) When river pairs, I represent that hand also, because I often in 3bet pots check behind with medium hand strenght and then bluff catch, since we have big sample he probably knows that. I could also have flush here, straight A3s.
      Do you think it is a huge spew? I invest 50$ to win 47$, so it needs to work > 55%, and I think I have it.

      2) I also think against reggs versus I play often it is ok to play like this sometimes even if it is -EV because they should see that I am sometmes bluffing, which can be +EV in future. What do you think about that? Because if I in this situation always shove only with nuts, then I dont get paid often.

      Preflop: I think it's close between a call and a squeeze. I think calling is certainly acceptable but given the reads on BU I prefer squeezing here cos he just folds so often to 3bets.

      Flop: Just bet the Flop here. And if you bet the flop you have an easy shove on the Turn. I think with the backdoor flush draw we should be more inclined to bet, and we can barrel so many cards (A/K/diamonds, maybe Q). Would give up without the diamond.
