      -----

      MP3 is relatively unknown TAG player.

      Preflop: I was advised previously to 3bet bluff with this hand against MP3 OR. However, I feel more comfortable playng this hand OoP in a lower pot and I think that by raising I isolate myself vs a stronger part of MP3's range whereas I could dominate some of his hands if I just call.

      Flop: was going to c/call. No need to raise as I would isolate myself vs stronger hands.

      Turn: I think I should have made a bet here. Was expecting the opponent to make a delayed cbet if he just checked with his medium made hands. I thinking betting here is more profitable as I will be called by KK-44 very often.

      River: finally made a value bet. Against a raise however, I don't think I have the right odds to call as his line seems very strong. It's unlikely that he turned a PP into a bluff or made a stone called bluff.
      Vs his value range I am also beat. The most possible hand here is JJ or J9. I think my fold was correct here as I don't see him ever bluffing here.

      3bet pre-flop to gain initiative. This is one of the examples of a hand that is so hard to play oop. Now you made TP and you still had no clue how to act against him.

      3-bet pre, and as played I'd prefer to donk the turn, if not the flop already as many weak opponents just check-back on ahi-board without Ace.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: You are playing a 6 handed game which means that his range could be wider than what you are used to. Playing OOP, especially without info and an offsuite hand is not easy so 3-betting is definitely the easier play. However, calling isn't terrible either.

      Postflop: I think that checking the turn at these limits is a mistake. You want to bet for value because most likely villain is checking back all pairs and draws (diamonds).

      As played river bet/fold is actually fine. He reps only JJ but he will almost always have it.
