Villain (218): 14/11/0.7 with 8.1 3bet

Wasn't sure about turn... Anyone play this any different?

Depending on the reads I have on a villain, I'm either going to four bet like you did and then see a flop, or after he three bets me, I'll shove. I think the call he made on the flop was very poor - ok, he had a back door flush draw, but even so, there's no way I'd be calling another bet with that flop. Once the jack comes, his equity improves and although I think he played the hand badly (or more or less) from start to finish, I can sort of see why he might call to see the river - since by then he's more or less committed / married to his hand. Unlucky, dude. :/

Edit : in his shoes, I would have called your 3x bet and folded to a flop bet. I wouldn't have three bet your utg raise with KQs unless I had a very specific read on someone (very unlikely).

Well played. Your sizing pre is good given we are deeper. Shoving pre over his 3b is terribad.

I like your flop sizing. I'd go maybe a $1 bigger on the turn so the river is a smaller shove relative to stacks but it's not a big deal.

River is a fistpump shove.

Hi dirt eh, I think you played this hand very well. Like your betsizes on each street, you could probably make it a bit bigger preflop as you are deep and OOP but apart from that there should be plenty of worse hands that can call you on each street here.
