      Note: no cbet = c/f

      €0.10/€0.20 No Limit Holdem
      5 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG (€20.30) 102bb
      hero (CO) (€19.70) 99bb
      BTN (€21.91) 110bb
      SB (€20.65) 103bb
      BB (€25.71) 129bb

      Pre-Flop: (€0.30, 5 players) hero is CO K Q
      1 fold, hero raises to €0.57, 1 fold, SB raises to €2.14, 1 fold, hero calls €1.57

      He got a ~12% range and i saw myself ahead so i called.
      Villain likes to barrel so i thought i can't always hope for a hit.

      Flop: J 4 4 (€4.48, 2 players)
      SB bets €2.40, hero calls €2.40

      He will always bet this flop and a raise would look suspicious so i tried a float.

      Turn: A (€9.28, 2 players)
      SB bets €4.80, hero goes all-in €15.16...

      I thought he will again bet with his entire range and i can get a lot of weak Ax, mid pairs, SC and one gappers to fold so i bluffshoved with my GS. I need ~52% Foldequity.
      He isn't too showdownbound and maybe even folds his weak flushdraws.

      He maybe only calls with AA,JJ,AQs+,A4s,54s,KdQd,AQo+ which is a fraction of his 3B range.

      Hey Chocular77,

      Preflop call is fine. Flop call is good.

      From a theoretical point of view your turn shove will be ok. In practice I prefer a turn fold.

      It really depends on 2 factors. 1)Is villains turn barreling range really as wide as you think it is in 3bet pot? and 2) Is he necessarily folding something like JQ just because he should.
