      The villain is a regular TAG at the tables with stats:
      18/7/ AF 2,6 - 3bet: 2,3%; WTSD: 23%

      from the 3-bet preflop and the looong thought before checking the flop and betting the turn after my check, smelled a lot like QQ there, so I felt the A on the river was the perfect bluff card there.

      I agree that it looks like QQ, and the river shove is probably fine against a weak/tight tag.

      Two caveats tho, with different angles. First, if villain is thinking enough, he can't really put you on an A at that point, so he'd have to give you either a random spazz or a trickily played monster and end up calling it off. Second, if villain is bad (which it looks like he is really, 18/7 is too big of a gap), he might not be able to fold QQ even with two overcards, not because he thinks about your range, but just because he can't fold.

      Hope it helps.

      I have played a lot against this villain and he is capable of folding
      and he's hand smelling awfully lot like QQ and two overs on the board
      looked like a good opportunity there, because @NL10 players mostly aren't putting you on hands/ranges. The "good" ones can at best lay down their monsters when the board looks ugly, but that's about it :f_biggrin:

      Thanks for your input :f_grin:
