      3bet bluff

      I was thinking whether I could check/raise turn for value. If he has a Kx he is definitely betting (unless it's a weak K in which case I'm getting only 2 streets of value anyway).

      Check/raise would be better as #1 I need to build the pot to get it in by the river and #2 only 1 combo of 99 is possible which means I have the relative nuts. In addition to that, #3 I will get more value from his floats.

      My turn betting range would include AK/KQ and my check/raise bluff range would have some low OESD's (86/65).

      Is my reasoning correct here?

      Hey Dawidas888,

      I think check-raising turn for value is totally fine in this spot + I like the play.

      2-barreling is clearly fine when you flop strong, but check/raising traps in a little additional money from floats if opponent will bluff.
