      Hey L,

      I think you can consider a 4bet preflop but flat is also fine. Given that you chose to flat I would lean towards barreling off postflop. The reason for it is to put max pressure on hands like J9 that 3bet as a bluff and now have a tough time if you bet but easy time if you check to check down.

      4bet for value against SB vs MP raise? villains 3bet seems strong to me

      if we put J9 in opponent's 3bet bluff range what else are we putting in there?

      I'm mainly checking behind here because I perceive villains range to be mostly value hands.

      Is he a tight regular? If he isn't then he will 3bet wide enough here to 4bet AK for value in 75% of cases. Calling is safer ofc.

      Usually when they 3bet they use hands like K9s,A9s, Q9s, T8s, etc. as a bluff, maybe has KQ, KJ sometimes which is fine by us to also fold. If you do check, your plan should be to bluffcatch later. What is your thinking for your turn bet if you think his checking range is mainly value hands? You don't bluff him now after checking the turn, he doesn't fold a pair even if you bet river as well.

      no reads unfortunately can't get hud to work on MPN blaze

      betting turn is a semi-bluff in this case I suppose after he checks turn as well i'm picking that my A or K could be live plus the :diamond: helps us ofc. This thought process^ ^ is only in retrospect to be honest i'm not sure what i was thinking at the time

      Well, you are a bit inconsistent when saying flop you think he checks to pot control so you check to realise your equity cheaply (which I think is not best since you have enough equity vs his checking range to pressure his whole stack) and then putting in a turn bet instead of taking your showdown value and equity based on your flop logic. :)

      yeah true that is quite inconsistent. In that case how many barrels should I fire?

      bet/bet/shove FTW imo :D

      You know his range to be smth like QQ at best imo, maybe KK without a diamond and all of that has a very tough time calling down plus your equity against those hands is just huge.
