      Hello,

      villain is a multitabler (4+).
      Is this a, or are there any, suitable flops to fire a bluff cbet on? I don't see him folding overpairs, maybe even not overcards like AK.

      Hi MarliesB,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: You 3-bet preflop so his range for calling is pairs, broadways and Ax. You aren't betting the flop to fold QQ but rather smaller pairs or better Ax.

      Your cbet is way too big as well. 11-12 BB is enough to achieve the same thing

      Given the board you should cbet all your value hands the same way.

      Why would you want to bet 3/4 pot with AA there?

      The board is dry and Jx is never folding if it called a 3-bet and flopped TP so he will call down. The 3-bet pot, with 100 BB, allows you to bet 3 streets relatively smaller and still get all the money in.

      Of course against fish you can bet bigger for value in 3-bet pots.

      But you can't bet for value 3/4 and as a bluff 1/2 so that's why you'd want to keep it smaller. plus on dry flops we generally bet smaller (and 3-bet pots).
