      Hi.

      Co doesnt even look loose. The 3bet is overplay vs a tag opening around 20-23% from CO.
      I think u should just treat ur hand as tptk and 3barrel. He rarely has AK here.

      Unless u are checking this for balance purposes which is probably not that important here. But i guess u are doing it for pot control purposes. Anyway as played just checkcall down and never fold.

      Thanks.

      I usually make decision on flop if I have 3 streets of value, and here I think he could call me only with KJ (probably only KJs) so it is 2 combos, and maybe KTs 2 combos. He could call me flop with fd or maybe float, but since I dont have the reads on his calling range and floating, I decided to bluff catch.
      Also I play this way with JJ, QQ, KJ, KT, so I do it also for balancing, but vs unknown it it was not a big concern.

      Well he may even fold kq to a third barrel or call kj. So its kind of like a "triple merge" play. Expanding ur value range als allows u to bluff more with stuff like A:sX.
