      BU was 25/21/5 over 582
      BU Stl - 56
      Ft3b - 75, 4b - 6(16).
      FtCB: F - 53, T - 0(1).
      AG% - 29 (36/22/23).

      His 3bet calling range is quite tight and this flop hits him very hard. However, I think he folds hands like ATs, T9, 99-77 to my cbet which is all I need. I'm not sure if my sizing should be bigger ($3) as this flops hits me pretty hard?

      Could I also check/raise in this spot? This way I could fold out AQ/JT as well as my line would look very strong.

      Villain almost snap called the flop. I don't like my 2nd barrel as nothing that called the flop is folding on the turn. My line should be x/c or x/f depending on his bet sizing.

      I could call 1/2 PSB and x/ship good rivers. However, the problem is that A/K pairs the board so my flush may not be good and I have high reversed implied odds. Therefore I prefer x/f line on the turn.

      Could I bluff shove this river? I think that not as I block some of the hands he could have called twice (76/65/54) that would fold. Also, I don't think the villain ever folds Jx in this spot.

      Would I ever bluff shove on this river? Maybe with AQ as I would have blockers to houses.

      Hi Dawidas888,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I don't really see why we bet the turn there. I doubt much of anything folds after calling you on hte flop. You can bet slightly bigger but I would not ck/raise here as a bluff.

      As played I'd give up on the river.
