      BU was 27/18/8 over 116 with AF of 4.

      PREFLOP
      Standard.

      FLOP
      Thin value bet and protection vs BW/OC.

      TURN
      Given the AF I opted to call a smallish bet as it's possible he is floating with BW/OC.

      RIVER
      I figure he's 3betting AQ+/A9/A8/QQ+ preflop his value range in this spot is quite small.
      Also, given his AF and smallish bet on the turn I opted to bluffcatch.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: How is that AF split up? Can you post AF by streets (and frequency)? The sample isn't huge but he seems to be a reg fish.

      Our bluffcatch is only good with a bit of info on the guy or if we are really assuming that he is really wide. His small turn bet makes me think that he is valuebetting rather than bluffing so I'd be inclined to fold.
