      villain is a decent reg who i play quite a lot against. his stats are usually 22/19, 7.3% 3bet over 4k hands. he knows my game quite well since we discuss theory together.

      i called preflop because he has a tendency to 3bet a lot from the blinds normally, but also whenever i've been HU with him i've seen him 3bet quite a wide depolarised range so i thought i can be doing okay IP against his range. but i'm not sure, maybe it's a fold pre?

      on the flop i think he'll just be cbetting most of the time since it's so dry, so i decided to float. he knows i've been experimenting with flop raises IP lately, so i decided not to do that here because i won't get credit.

      when i hit on the turn i think i can value bet since in his eyes i'll be betting all of my air/turned draws. i sort of expected light calls because of this... same reason on the river - i expect him to call with some bluffcatchers especially now that draws missed...

      is it played ok?

      Pretty long post there,

      Pre flop - with QK against him, I think he's 3betting very very muchwider in heads up and QK is the nnuts so I'm either calling or 4betting for value. Since he's depolarised it means he would fold a tonne to 4bets so I prefer calling to keep all his thrash in on the

      Flop - definitely floating on almost every flop with 2 over cards. I expect him to shut down on many turns and then we can take it away or showdown K high.

      Turn and river - plays itself since we hit we bet for value. He's calling worse
