      Preflop would you call or 3bet instead? Postflop okay to bluff here? He cbets a lot, so I'd expect a lot of FE. What sizing would you use on the turn/river? I bet smaller on the turn, if he has an Ax or 2 pairs he could call, and bet bigger on the river after his turn call, because I think he'll fold his Axs and 2 pairs anyway, only QcXc could call, and that will call a bigger amount. Maybe should have bet bigger?

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: Looks like villain doesn't like folding to 3-bets and he doesn't 4-bet that much so we can 3-bet for value (he also folds a fair amount to cbets).

      Postflop: As played I think you played it fine given that he is a guy that doesn't g o often to showdown and we don't want to give him more reasons to drop his Jc/Qc (if we shipped it).
