      No relevant notes, decent NL25 reg.

      PREFLOP
      Stealing any 2 is profitable :f_love: though my actual range is more like 70% vs this guy.

      FLOP
      Thin value bet - villain thinks until time bank and calls.

      TURN
      Plan was to check/call as villain floats a lot.

      RIVER
      3 is a blank and villain thought for a bit and made a bet. Flush draw missed, I figured Jx/lower PPs are betting OTT so this bet doesn't rep much besides 33/A4 and some weird slowplayed hand. Therefore, I think it's a decent spot to bluffcatch.

      Hi David,

      Preflop: how exactly is any 2 profitable? Don't forget that the money you lose with the junk hands postflop (the ones you overplay) add to your overall "profitability). Easy fold pre

      Postflop: As played the call is fine as long as villain does not value bet thin 3rd pair type hands. Jx should bet turn.
