Mad_dog makes a lot of sense. This is good advise.

Pretty much what i thought to be honest. I don't think it matters against the population. It does get interesting on a player dependent basis. Many regs in my games wont ever barrel AQ/AK here which changes the calculus significantly. This guy though though so i shoved and he folded.

Is there a reason you are not 4B this hand preflop?

As played, once you decide to take a passive line (call pre and cc turn) then i think betting the river is a mistake. What bluffs do you take this line with?

Comment | Phoenix Star commented on Redline Problem?

Call more 3bets IP
4bet bluff slightly more
Fight for smaller pots that no one is interested in
Isolate weaker players more often.
Create bigger pots IP when you have a weaker player OOP
Barrel more turns when you pick up equity and its difficult for villain to continue

You are basically playing fairly weak and this is quite simple to fix.

I disagree that you have a range advantage on that flop.

The questions you ask on this hand depend on who villain is and how he constructs his squeeze range in this spot.

The bottom line for me is where is your edge in these games? I doubt it comes from trying to play leveling games in such a spot. I feel like you are trying to be balanced for the sake of it. This is such a low frequency spot that spending time trying to decode it is simply not the best use of your time.

As played I think everything is fine provided you do nothing other than fold the river.
