      Hello!

      When he raise/call preflop, ace could definitelly be in his range, but he can also have something like pocket pair ore some other broadway. I checked back the flop, hoping for inducing some bluffs with worse hands. I decided to call the small bet on the turn. The river was close, I think. Probably the best option would be folding..

      MP: 21/15/43/17/3,3/517 (VPIP/PFR/FvFlopCB/TurnDonk/AF/H) I have marked him as a fish, because I saw him open limping alot.

      Hey Alleen86,

      Preflop 3bet is fine.

      Checking back the flop with KK on Axx is the best play imo.

      I don't think turn is even a decision, you have to bluff-catch at least one-street here, otherwise you might aswell just turn your hand into bluff on flop.

      River is the main decision here. I typically assume that players are not 2-barrel bluffing at these stakes. His sizing also suggests he'd prefer a call to a fold. I think his range is weighted towards Ax here and you should fold.

      Having said that, you only need the best hand 25% of the time to call, and there is a possibility villain is bluffing. I still slightly prefer folding.
