      Pretty self explanatory.
      Just wondering if I should have check/called all the way to the river? I put the guy on AK/AQ but knew KK/QQ was possible.

      I should mention that I was trying to isolate teh SB who was extremely loose (50+vpip) and very passive.

      Hi,


      Why would you want to isolate him with such a huge 3bet ? SB is already dead money in that spot, you'll never fold anything to him anyway. I like 3betting to ~$0.9 more, since then MP3 could try to isolate SB himself by shoving over, and he'll also call lighter than he would when you make it clear that you have no intention of ever folding.

      Flop is a mandatory shove, he's not folding anything that hit the flop but he might check behind and hit a gutshot on you or something.


      Hope it helps.
