      We have some action going on 2 or 3 tables with this villain.
      I open MP, btn cc, villain squeezes from BB, i 4bet, fold fold
      Villain opens UTG i 3bet btn he 4bets i muck.
      In this hand he call 3bet oop, so i put him on something 88-JJ, AQs
      On the flop hes not gonna fold much, i got GS so i chb.
      On the turn i repping AK
      On the river hes polorized, i dont think hes even gonna cr TT here. But i still like my river bet, he will have hard time callin JJ or 99 here.
      Is it better line to cbet flop, barrel scare card on turn and shut down river?

      with your history I think it is reasonable just fold A5s or call ip.
      He would very often 4-bet for value or bluff and you have to fold your hand
      I would likely c-bet this board, since I think you can barrel him on Q/K/A cards and you also take it down quite often, since he might call with your history hands like KQ/JT/AQ which he would all fold if you bet flop.
      turn bet is fine, I don´t like river bet. You´re not reping there anything else than AK and even then he can turn hand like 88 into bluff and c/rai thinking he has fold equity against AK and ofcourse bluffs.
