      Is it ok to bluff catch? What does he represent on this board besides bluff or fd? just 33, and maybe AQ. Would it be ok to 3bet flop?
      Since I am IP and he is protecting for me, I prefered calling down. Turn is great card imo, it is scare card if he bluffs and he hits sometimes two pairs. QQ+ he 3bets. Would you fold if the flush completes on river? Shove turn?

      what do you think about his line? I think raise flop is ok (not vs me because I am very tight after raise and slowplay) but I dont get his turn bet and river? I cant call with worse there.
      Or maybe he bets, because he doesnt want to check call, or fold so it is better to bet so I cant check behind weaker... He is a good regg, so I am wondering if his game is ok.

      Hi Gingerkid,

      Given the board texture it's definitely fine to bluff catch. He isn't repping a lot of value hands. He may have 2 combos of A3s but that's about it.

      As played we can even jam the turn on him but calling down is fine too.

      His line is really weird and doesn't make a lot of sense when he pots the turn. He should bet smaller on both streets. It's possible that he was just hoping to take the pot down on the "scare card" but that also doesn't make a lot of sense.
