Hi, villain is playing 40/30/0 and facing 2 3 bets call both of them.
What you think of my play ?

Hi fp,

I wonder if the sample size is relevant as 40/30/0 looks like a small sample, but certainly vs. a villain described like this I think 3-betting to iso his wide opens in position with the best hand is fine.

Flop I would probably c-bet as this guy I suspect will actually call with worse hands. As played, fold to the river bet, our hand is pretty face up and he's making it really easy to call him down with JJ-KK, this looks a lot like an ace to me trying to eek value out of us. After we call turn I don't expect him to bluff the river often, and certainly not with this sizing. If he's a leveling master or weird bluffed me with blind luck, then he will get me off the J's this time. I doubt he's sophisticated enough to turn a smaller pair into a bluff (would probably check river to you) and to do so with a small bet to boot.
