      Villain is a LAG. 29/24/19 but small sample. Preflop I don't 3bet because i don't think enough better hands will fold (ive seen him call T7 even oop) and it's not strong enough to 3bet for value (think he will call with all broadways, and a bunch of suited hands which have around same strength as my JT)

      On the flop I'm thinking this board helps my range much more than his. And I like to attempt a semi bluff here. Is this a bad idea on such a board? When he 3bets, I thought he might be bluffing (Because I've seen him c/r flop oop in 3bet pot with only BD draws on a similarly scary board). So I decided to call and bluff catch.

      Right now when I think about it, it's a similar line he will take if he has two pair or sets here (or even tptk sometimes). So probably there's not enough bluffs in his range for us to make the call profitably. Furthermore on the turn and river all his AT,KT,Ahxh and Khxh semi bluffs got there.

      Hello,

      Interesting hand.

      Preflop calling is fine.

      On the flop I would rather just check/call here.
      Check/raising is putting us in a difficult situation whether we get called or face a 3bet.
      Also, why do you make it so small - would you make it so small with 99? Why?
      Against the 3bet I don't really like calling here. We are OOP and our turn play would be quite hard. Also, I do expect people to be mostly 3betting here for value.

      As played, just fold both turn and river. Calling him down on this bad rundown is quite bad, since we are only beating some random crazy bluff like Q2 or so.

      Best,
      Plamen
