      -----

      SB was 20/16/9 over 119. FtCB - 50. FtStl - 70.
      The guy was 3betting my steals quite a lot, i.e. he played back at me.

      FLOP
      His flop raise doesn't really rep much besides a FD. He would 3bet most of his high pairs so I figure my OC's are still live.

      TURN
      Do I take another stab or take a free card? I wonder if I have any FE in this spot.

      hi.

      you floated him with the intention of stealing it away later on. Stick with the plan !!!

      Another alternative option is to 3bet the Flop. I do agree that he reps really little and you should play back at him. 88/33 probably slowplays and he only reps A3s, I don't think he has A3o or K3s too often.

      Thanks.

      Hello,

      I think I would cback that flop - his low fold to cbet % indicates that he's not giving up and you would have to make multible barrels. You should also fold in case he raises you.

      Hi mbml

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      I assume we make a 3rd barrel on non river as it's likely he minraise with a FD and he's not folding on the turn, right?

      Thanks again!

      Hi CPallo

      I have no showdown value by checking and I need this bet to work only 33% of the times. The guy folds 50% so it seems like a profitable one to make. In addition to that, I have backdoor draws and OCs. Therefore, I think cbetting is not bad here.

      Thanks for your opinion!

      hi.

      i'm not too sure how often he minraises Flop and check/calls turn with a flush draw. IMO that's likelier to be 8X which is overplayed.

      Should we bluff the River? I'm not too sure, I think it could be reasonable though. IMO a heart river is good for bluffing cos 8X has to fold.

      Thanks.
