      My line seems too giving away though. I don't get value and if for example the ten that actually came rivers I don't know if i call a riverbet.

      Make it 3,5pf
      I´d make 10$ on the turn, but c/c is also fine. Since he checked turn and river is kind of blank, then you should make 10$ valuebet.

      Allright I agree on the valuebet.


      The pf raise is purpose though. I make all my 3bets light and 3bet with a wider range instead. I only jump back to 3betting big if there's only people on the tabe who don't fold to a 3bet with a bad hand. Then I only raise for value with TT+

      I'd say 15% of my light 3bets are bluffs (with SC or little PP) versus players with high pfr but fold equity.

      I believe the idea for 3betting more here at least is because of you're position.

      3betting more is an attempt to counteract the fact that you're oop for the rest of the hand.

      Otherwise you're making it cheap for opponents to see flops in position, so they may call you with a wider range of hands. Widening their calling range obviously decreases your fold equity.

      My understanding of 'light' 3betting, btw, is it's more about exploiting a villains wide open raising range, particularly their late position range, by 3betting weaker hands as villain will fold a lot of the time, rather than adjusting your betsize.

      Yeah I know the term, but I adjust my betsize. Especially on the BB if BU raises I oftentimes get a fold from a bad hand.
