      Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $57.31 (114.6 bb)
      UTG: $27.66 (55.3 bb)

      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 9 K K (2 players)

      Turn: ($14.25) J (2 players)
      BB bets $10, Hero calls $10

      River: ($34.25) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $32.50, Hero folds


      BB looked like a TAG after a few hands


      Just 3bet flop, and get it in? He probably doesnt have AK here very often after just calling preflop, so I beat everything except 99.

      As played? Turn is bad, cause he can have lots of FDs here. On the river he instabet pot (didnt even think about it), so I made a herofold here. I only beat KTs mainly, and some QJ/JT where he continued bluffing his pair. X:cX/KJ/QT beat me.

      By the river my range looks like this:
      KK+,JJ,99,AKs,K2s+,AcQc,AcTc,QcTc,Ac8c,Qc8c,Tc8c,Ac7c,8c7c,Ac6c,8c6c,7c6c,Ac5c,6c5c,Ac4c,5c4c,Ac3c,Ac2c,AKo,K9o+ (79 combos)

      After he bets, in theory I need to defend top 51% of my range (best 40 combos). If I fold all KQ, it's still 45 combos I call with:
      KK,JJ,99,AKs,KJs,K9s,K3s,AcQc,AcTc,QcTc,Ac8c,Qc8c,Tc8c,Ac7c,8c7c,Ac6c,8c6c,7c6c,Ac5c,6c5c,Ac4c,5c4c,Ac3c,Ac2c,AKo,KJo,K9o (45 combos)

      What do you think?

      Hi

      Looks fine to me. Don't expect him to triple barrel bluff here too often and you should have enough boats and flushes and AK in your range to prevent him from triple barreling rivers too often.

      Thanks.

      Thanks. What do you think about the flop vs unknown?
      Rather 3bet or just call IP? If I call, I keep his possible bluffs in, and could easily calldown, except flush comes and he fires big, like happened here...

      People are usually polarized with their 3-betting ranges here so I think calling is by far the best play.
