      Hi,


      Aggainst guys like this, who are better players and have stats like: cbet:93, turncbet:83.


      Is such a play ok?

      Preflop I called because he has a similar hand, most of the time I am ahead of his range.

      flop: Most of the time he misses the flop so I called thinking that I am still ahead

      turn: The ten might hit some of his hands but it is still possible that he has nothing, he is just trying to represent the ten, so my plan here was to r/f

      or if he checked the turn, I would just b/f or if he calls see the river

      I made the rais on the turn smaller than 3x, because he will fold air anyway, do you think I can make it even smaller?

      Hey BotiaKiraly,

      Preflop you may or may not be ahead of MP's range. It's probably pretty close to a coinflip vs MP open. It wouldn't be a huge mistake to fold, or 3bet as a bluff.

      Against a guy who barrels flop and turn way too much I think your line is generally good here. The problem is, villain looks reasonably tight. He might have high barreling stats simply because he opens a narrow range, and bluffing vs a strong narrow range is not a good strategy. So while your bluff is ok, it is unnecessary.

      Also I agree, you might be able to raise a little smaller.
