      Ok firstly we're playing SH almost here, 7 players at the table. Villain is 82/73 over ~50 hands, and i've seen him raise and showdown complete junk, literally any two. In this respect, I'm sure the 3Bet is good. I've seen him fold to contibet a few times, his stats say 20%, so even when I miss the flop I think i'm good to CB against his range, i'm likely still ahead anyway. The turn comes a blank, and being in position and checked to, I take the opportunity to have a free card. When the river hits i'm positive i've got to be good, and i'm also pretty sure he's calling anything, so I bet big for value. What do you think?

      Hi,


      I like your play as it is, NH.

      If he's really nuts even postflop, you can even try to c-bet a bit less to induce more bluffs and shove over a raise. You'll get a lot of folds, sometimes you'll even get called by worse overcards, and even if he shows a pair you're still in okay shape with overs and a backdoor. Make sure you're confident with your game before that tho =)


      Hope it helps.
