      -----

      I had a small history with MP3. He 3betted me 2 times before.
      First time I had AQ and the flop was low, so I folded my cbet to his flop raise.
      Second time I had KK and the flop was low so I 3betted his raise and he folded.

      Preflop: This was a small mistake, from MP2 I raise 66+ :)

      Flop: With previous history, I decided to call since the raise was small and he have done this every single time to my cbet. My plan was to c/c any turn (except A) and c/f river if he bets.
      Turn: Pretty safe.
      River: Decided to block bet. After he raised smallish (he thought some time before raising) it looked like a spaz so I called. In retrospect, his raise couldn't rep Qx as he would be betting on the turn and it is unlikely that he would have raised with a 9x or an 8x so I think my call was correct.

      Hello,

      Considering the history we have with villain, I would just overlimp here preflop.

      On the flop, since he tends to raise our bets, I would just check/fold.
      I don't really feel comfortable bet/calling and then calling him down with an underpair here.

      As played, I'd just check/fold the river.

      Overall, you are putting too much thought on NL2 and this shouldn't be what you should aim for - just play simple poker instead.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi kyumpa

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      That's was, and apparently still is, my main mistake when I used to play poker before. I absolutely agree with your evaluation and my plan will be: #1 If someone limps before me I will overlimp my smaller pp and play accordingly, i.e. in multi-way pots I'll just c/f if I don't hit my set. #2 I will not try to bluffcatch and play passively with underpairs.

      Thanks for the help.
