      regs usually will have Ax/QQ with bet/check/bet, fish will have air more often.

      your perceived range is just super capped on the river so he will (or should) vbet any Ax so you have to guess his bluffing frequency.
      imo it's an easy fold and c/c with some weak Ax you 3bet in this spot (where you block his Ax combos)

      Hey Natrilis,

      Not a huge fan of 3betting preflop vs unknown at these limits with TT. Theoretically nothing too terrible but in my experience you will show a larger long-run profit here by flatting unless you know for certain villain is opening wide and not folding to 3bets.

      Flop check is good on this texture. Check/call flop is fine, you should be looking to check/call turn.

      I wouldn't estimate villain's river bluff frequency to be overly high here. Usually most villains will continue firing if they want to bluff. Flop call and turn check suggest showdown value, probably a weak Ax, maybe an overplayed KQ. I'd fold river here.
