      Hello, I have 3 interesting hands here I would like to discuss with somebody that has a good knowledge in these area's.

      Firstly here is the players stats

      37/28 vpip/pfr
      32 agg%
      9.4 3bet
      11.3 3bet stat vs me

      witch has gone from 7%-11.3 in the last few sessions we have played, Don't be fooled by his stats we have played heads up together a little bit witch throws the vpip and pfr out, He is by far the best player i have encountered at this limit and he crush's it, he has won somthign like $111 over 3k hands 30bb/100 this isn't down to luck either, I seemed to have found 1 of his weak area's and its deceptive 3bets, now what i intend to do is use this against him, he hasn't noticed i have changed my gameplan vs him, because i know what he is doing to me, i am only raising hands i can play back at him, we played about 15 3bet pots and only 1 4bet pot in this session. i was crushing him in most of them apart from these 3 hands, now i think i know my mistakes and would like somebody just to comfirm them, or put me right

      Ok for a start can you tell me if i have these ranges correct?

      we raise 77+ Kx and Ax hands and suited broadways

      Our calling range IP and OOP is 77-JJ and suited broadways

      Our 4bet range IP and OP is AK QQ+ Axo Kxo

      I feel KQo is a call IP 4bet OOP is that correct? or should i 4bet this offsuit hand always?

      Any other hand we should fold

      Moving on to hand 1

      Giving the positions i am BTN and he is SB, his range is going to be wider deceptively because he knows im wider from BTN witch generates more folding equity in his eyes, (he doesn't know im now only opening past him with hands i can play back at him) so i call with a hand that is probably ahead of his range, with position and the 300bb effective deep stack i call, so now my question here is abiut the flop, his range is full of draws mostly here, and the big hands obviously, its a good flop for him to bet, since he thinks my range is pocket pairs, he probably thinks i 4bet AK KK AA QQ, so he has either some monsters or flushdraws and weak Ax hands, he is a good player and wont get attached to a weak ace, with that said, my KQ is likely to be the best hand at the moment since there is many blockers to AK AA and KK on the flop and in my hands, that said, shouldn't my plan be reraise/fold on this flop since all his weak Ax will fold and flush draws will call witch i charge them for instead of giving him free cards, i even believe this player could fold AQ here, i don't expect him to bluff his missed draw since he knows im checking back the turn to bluff catch missed draws anyway, so if he does call with a flush its most likely going to go check check, after the flop,


      Now onto hand 2

      Im guessing this 1 is pretty simple but nonetheless, I 4bet him about 6 times and this is the only time he called, im assuming his range is going to be very strong like 99+ AK, so when i missed to flop with AK i shouldn't invest any more money with cbet bluffs right?

      Now onto hand 3

      This hand is similar to the first one in the way i think i should of played it, now i call and hold MP on this dry flop of T35r i check he cbets, this miss's a lot of my range that i would call him with and another good flop for him to cbet, however it miss's a lot of his range too, since he has a huge deceptive 3bet range of a lot of hands like 78s 79s j8s etc, so when i call the flop here my hand is vulnerable, and it gives him chance to catch up, so shouldn't i be check raise/folding this flop vs him, again im pretty sure he could fold a weak Tx hand maybe even AT since JJ and TT are in my calling range

      If you made it this far, thanks for reading and im looking forward for your replys :f_thumbsup:
