      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.07, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled back ($1.07)


      MP3 is unknown but looked like a TAG player.

      Preflop: I 3bet as a bluff with the top of my folding range vs MP. When he calls I put him on QQ-TT, maybe even lower PPs & AQ+.

      Flop: I cbet for protection (vs JJ-TT and possibly lower PP). When he call I'm pretty sure I'm behind given the board texture.
      Turn: I couldn't find a fold button vs such a smallish bet. It seemed very weak.
      In retrospect, it should be an easy fold as I don't have a spade and the only way to improve would be to complete my gutshot which may already be beaten.
      River: an easy fold as I don't have a spade nor am I likely to be ahead vs his preflop calling range.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: He is opening in the hijack so 3-bet bluff here with blockers isn't terrible.

      Postflop: I think that you should simply ck/fold the turn once he calls this flop and the draw hits there too.

      I doubt he has anything worse betting there like that.
