      3bet for thin value.

      Villain is aggressive and my hand is not good enough to bet for value, but the best I'm check/calling with.

      Hi David,

      Preflop: looks fine for thin value

      Postflop: Besides AQ/99 and maybe AK there's not much he is repping so I don't mind taking a passive line to induce light barrels from an aggro player.

      Of course his bet size on the turn/river gives away a lot of his strength. It's almost as if he wants to bet small to keep you in and then take it from you with a big bet on the river.
