      Final Pot: $5.6.

      Stats:20/14/6,8/226 hands FT3b 67%....anyways, It's too small sample...it is not objective

      Preflop stanrad 3bet for value with KK 4x sizing as I am out of position.

      On the flop It's automatic cbet for me I target pocket pairs and maybe some 1 pair hands like ATs,JTs,QTs,KTs etc that he can call in this spot in position.
      And of coure few draws with suited connectors on his hand lije 87s,JQ etc.
      I can get value from quite a lot of hands.

      Turn is Ace and I didn't know what to do on this turn :f_cry: .
      maybe I should've bet, but I chose ch/fold because I was scared.

      Now I know that he can¨t have lots of AX hands and that I could bet once more and fold to raise and If he just calls my bet then I would ch/fold the river.

      Hello,

      Preflop and flop are good.
      Do you always cbet 2/3 in a 3bet though?

      I like your turn play as well.
      Some of his Ax floats on the flop just improved, also I doubt that if we bet we get called by much worse here.
      At the same time, I do expect him to check back most of his weak made hands and try to get to showdown with them cheap, so check/fold turn looks good to me.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Yes I often cbet 2/3 on this type of flops, because I want to get maximum value from pocket pairs that call almost always and protect against draws.
      Is it bad thinking? :s_o:

      Well we don't really have to bet so big.

      In 3bet pots, SPR is quite smaller so we can easily put the money in until the river and by betting smaller we make it cheaper for us to bluff in several spots.
