      villain playing 16/11 over 11 hands, no reads

      pre: think 4bet getting in is terrible so deep in this spot.

      as played, thoughts on line?

      by river we really only beat KK turned into bluff (if he even does this) and some random hands....

      Hey Y,

      Preflop is fine imo.. UTG vs MP it's hard to 4bet a lot against most people because they don't 3bet too wide so calling pre is good.

      Postflop I think your line is OK.. although you don't beat much, you don't need to beat a whole lot. You get good odds and are close to the top of your range, apart from what, AQs and QQ? Hands your opponent can turn into a bluff can include KJ, JT type hands, which given his also thin value range, will usually be enough for a call here with the odds.
