      Very aggro guy, but if i check back the flop, he will barrel the turn-river, and i cant call. So i decided to cbet, and then 3bet his raise, i have some equity if called. Is this ok or i should have folded right away, without cbetting?

      Why can't you call turn+river? If he bluffs a lot you can make quite light call-downs. I just don't understand why you raise this pre-flop if you know he will raise you off light..

      Well, i will have 4rd or 5th pair on the river, and i dont think i can ever call profitably.

      About the preflop part, well, u must be right, i should have folded this hand probably.

      Hey Absolutism,

      Preflop: If your opponents are aggro, either pre or post and they play back a lot you don't want to open hands like this.

      Postflop: As played it's a fold after the 3-bet however what's the reason behind our raise? What better hands fold there?

      Also, you said you cbet/3-bet but I see that you actually raised his donk and folded to his 3-bet.
