      Anon. table. No info.

      Preflop, i think is ok to 3bet as a bluff.

      What do you preffer? Just bet the turn or check turn, bet river if he checks? I think that he will call a turn bet, more often the a river bet with his bluff cachers?

      Hi AchillesBG,

      Preflop: There are many better hands we can 3-bet bluff CO vs BTN

      Postflop: His donk doesn't really make sense on a board that you usually cbet with most of your range.

      So the question is, what range do you put him on for checking that turn? I think that betting the turn is definitely a good option to get him to fold his equity but as played the river bet is a must but should probably be smaller as I doubt he can call much.
