      Hi.

      I dont think our hand is strong enough to value bet 3 streets so we can take some different lines.

      1. Check flop and call down or bet turn and rivr when checked to.
      2. Bet twice and cf river - dont think he would have too many busted draws

      Yep, we would cc any though, assuming villain is aggro enough to turn hands into bluffs.

      And how check-calling flop balanced in this spot? For me it's just bet-calling each street for 100bb in 3bet pot - standart balanced line for value.

      Firstly i dont see how balance is all that important. Secondly i will have hands like K:hK in my cc range so my opponent cannot just barrel 3 streets all the time. If the heart hits i will have some flushes in my range still. If no heart hits i would just cc 3 streets w AQ and AK.

      Bet calling 100bb is overplay vs a ton of opponents (passive fish and straightforward TAGs). I suggest u measure your flop equity vs a range of sets, twopairs and some X:hX type of hand with a one card flushdraw but dont give too many of those combos cos we are being pessimistic with our range estimations since passive fish and straigtforward tags arent raising the turn light too often.

      Let's say he have a fish in the hand,who def calls wide 3b,and ofc doesn't like to fold.
      Aren't u considering value here betting BIG OTF with basicly THE NUTS,and overbet shove any non :heart: river?

      JUst asking,because I can't believe a fish will ever fold 10 :heart: + FD ever especially with a pair

      About balance: KxK here is the same as AK without hearts, it is not a balance. Which means we have never flushes in our check-calling range, which means opponents can easily bluff us out.
      Anyway it is always bet flop at least. Mb check-call turn. But check-calling flop is awful in my opinion.
      And we don't care here about sets or 2 pairs because we have protected our hand preflop, opponent can't call profitably preflop on distance, so we don't fear this type of hands.

      I would prefer to bet/fold 3 streets, if he raises at any point in time, it's a snap fold for me.

      I'm not sure why you think KK with a is the same as AK. KK with a heart allows us to bluff catch on Turns or Rivers. AK is a hand which I am going to c/c down if there are no hearts.

      So your worry about being bluffed out of the hand is unfounded. Doesn't matter if we rarely have flushes in our range here - if we are not folding TPTK for 3 streets, then he cannot bluff out 100% of our range and we are not super exploitable in this sense.
