      On turn I let him lbuff, I dont want to be checkraised.

      On river his range is very polarized, he can of course have the flush or FH and use his agro image and do this. SO I folded.

      I don't think this guy is a good aim for light 3betting. I would expand my value range vs him, not bluff range.

      Hi Speed,

      I believe we had a similar discussion once about 3-betting hands like this as a bluff where you have a villain that doesn't like folding and can easily call with a wide range that's ahead of our hand, and dominates our Kx.

      Against someone like him I'd increase my value range while decreasing our bluff range although when we bluff I want hands that are not easily dominated.

      As played I agree with your line.

      The problem is - we are 3 handed so I thought I need to defend more. SO if I 3bet only for value, then I will fold a lot. I probably cannot call with this hand.

      I mean of course I need to expand value range but it still be not so wide to defend against probably 80% or bigger BTN steal (I assume he steals wider in 3handed then his stats show)
