      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:club: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) T:spade: 7:spade: 7:diamond:
      CO bets 5.24 BB, Hero calls 5.24 BB

      Turn: (17.98 BB, 2 players) 5:club:
      CO bets 12.58 BB, Hero calls 12.58 BB

      River: (43.14 BB, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      CO checks, Hero checks

      CO shows 6:heart: 6:spade: (Full House, Sixes full of Sevens) (Pre 55%, Flop 64%, Turn 80%)
      Hero mucks Q:club: A:diamond: (One Pair, Sevens) (Pre 45%, Flop 36%, Turn 20%)
      CO wins 41 BB


      I am not sure if I went too far with floating. He is cbetting 72% flop, and turn 70%.

      I know that I dominate his range, but should I fold on this flop? If my only plan is to float flop give up turn, thats not going to be +EV since he cbets turn 72%. He folds to raise on flop 0/6, turn 0/2, so I cant do that.
      Maybe the best vs him and similar type of players, to play tight on flop and continue only when I hit, or have gutshot +?

      Hey,

      I would consider preflop 3bet first of all with position against CO.

      Postflop, when you know someone barrels you can usually think about floating less when you have a marginal hand and turn it into a bluff raise. For example, I would call some pairs and flushdraws but a hand like QJdd is too weak so I'd raise that.. Maybe put AQo in that category as well. It blocks overpairs that can continue, you are likely to have the best hand some of the time to so he just needs to fold some air and a few AK, AQ for you to be profitable.

      When you bluff raise IP, do you continue betting the turn and river? Does it depend on if the scare cards come?
      I notice that most of opponents call raises, and stats are showing that they have low fold to raise after cbet and check/raise, so then vs them should I barrel turn and river to make them fold. Or simply avoid bluff raising them, and raise also with TPTK, or even TPGK?

      When people don't fold after they cbet just raise hands with good equity, including TPTK and barrel. They refuse to fold, we just construct a range that has them crushed, very depolarised, very high equity overall.
