      WTSD - 27, W$SD - 26

      Villain was rather LAGy and I wasn't sure whether i should 3bet/call or just call his check/raise. I'm pretty sure I have plenty of FE if I 3bet in this spot, but I'm gonna be committed if he shoves. Given how often this guy check/raises I think it's not too bad to 3bet/call OTF as I'll pick up plenty of dead money this way and I may even get it in vs a worse draw.

      Was lost in this spot in general so opted to check fearing of another check/raise (like a boss :f_cool: ).

      Went for an unexplainable fancy bluff OTR... I beat all his bluffs and it's not like he's gonna fold a better hand to $1 so it's not a thin value bet.

      Hi Dawidas888

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Cbet larger to begin with, I'm not sure why you bet 1/2 unless you wanted to induce.

      And I agree that a 3-bet is better since you bet small and thus induced a lot. Bet the turn imo.
