      Villian is 17/15/4.2 (VPIP/PFR/AF) after 259 hands Cbet 60%,2nd barrel 60%also (he was beting 2streets almost always). i didn't expected him to value bet so small on river. It looked like a blocking bet. Is this a good idea to shove river in that situation???

      If you are right about his turn barreling frequency on that texture, which is a bit questionable considering you're 3-way with a fish on the flop so his c-bet flop / c-bet turn range should be stronger than usual, then I love it, tho we don't often see these plays at nl10.

      He could still have pure air on the turn, but once he tells you his hand is worth blockbetting with on the river your 99 is no good, so calling sucks. Which means your hand has no value whatsoever at that point, so your only choices are to either give up and fold, or turn your hand into a bluff by shoving with the intention of making him fold Tx / JJ+.


      - he is really tight
      - your line looks like a slowplayed set or Thxh
      - he's making an obvious blockbet

      i think there is a very high chance he planned on folding to a shove right from the start, so i like your jam in that spot. If it looks like he's not just some complete robot and is actually paying attention, be sure to make a note whether you get caught or not and use it against him in the future.

      Hope it helps.
