      Hi, guys. What do you think? Does he 3bet and call a big 4bet with SCs or A2s-A6s? Does he call flop with AK without BKFD or only with AKdd? Would you bet small turn to check river or check turn? What do you think about river? Villain is unknown. Thanks.
    • Pre - seems like a smallish 3bet from BB OOP 2.2 > 7.1, especially since you're both a bit deeper, could be a tell i suppose. He then calls 4bet - for me this doesn't seem nutted - villain probably is 5betting a really tight narrow range (which you block significantly), but i would've thought that even hands like JJ/QQ/AK would be 3betting pre-flop bigger - IMO villain doesn't really have AK here often at all, could be wrong though. Other than that i suppose some SCs, suited broadways, Axs and middle~ish pockets...

      Flop - i guess whatever, 1/3, 1/2...?

      Turn - seemed thin too thin at first, like, it would be really awkward if he x/jammed, but we don't really expect that, do we??? And yeah, feels better to bet small to check turn than check back and bluff catch on the river.

      River - yeah, a bit weird - feels like ATs AJs AQ type of hand, but those are very limited as it's only A :diamond: T :diamond: , A :diamond: J :diamond: and AxQ :heart: possible, considering preflop action, villain's call vs 1/2 flop bet and the A :heart: being blocked by the board. As i said, AK is blocked hard and also, just feels unlikely from preflop. Other than that - it's only flushes possible, but that's just Q :heart: J :heart: , Q :heart: T :heart: , J :heart: T :heart: at most. If we add 8 :heart: 7 :heart: , 9 :heart: 7 :heart: and 9 :heart: 8 :heart: then we should also have potential bluffing hands as those hands not in hearts do have a gutshot or openener and could call flop bet as well, still just don't really see anyone bluffing here.
