      38/26, ag. fr 58, 48h

      preflop he looks weak with his minraise, and I don't know how he folds to 3bes, so I 3bet, because this has not the best playability.

      On flop I am not sure if its spewy call or not. I am almost getting odds for FD, but I have almost not implied odds on this board, maybe vs weaker flushes I do.
      And also Ks, Qs is in his range.

      What do you think?

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      I think 3bet bluff vs unknown UTG is pretty unnecessary - I'd just fold. Having said that your hand is too weak to call and is an ok hand to put in your bluff range generally speaking.

      Flop cbet is fine. Vs check-raise the best option is to fold. Direct odds are not so important here, because your implieds really suck. If villain has a low flush he probably won't pay you off when he hits. If he has Ks/Qs you suffer form reverse-implieds.

      Is he really having a callling range here vs cbet? I think he raises or folds. If he has draw - he wants to take down, because if he calls and hits his draw- he is not expecting pay off, if he has made hand - he wants value from draws.

      So then it means when I cbet/fold - it doies not matter that I have fd, because I will not see turn anyway most of the time.

      Why do you want villain to call?? You are bluffing....

      I think villain will definitely have a calling range here, but I also think it's not actually that relevant in deciding whether a bluff will be profitable.

      I dont' want him to call, but I was thinking - if he has no calling range, then it does not matter if I have FD or anything, because I will not see next card.
