Hi all!

I have no information about any villains.

With AJs i raise 2.6x and i get a 3bet of 10X. I called here because i saw a tendency at this 25NLH zoom a 3 bet a button bet very often and my hand can be a good bluff-catcher.

On the flop he checks and i checked back just because he represented something big and it could easily be JJ,TT,QQ,KK and do not want to scary him.
On the river he leads out and i put to initial hands something like A8s,A9s,A7s.I called the turn for paired type hands he could also had.

On the river i 2 paired up and he checks.After this i was almost sure he has something like QQ,KK and i over bet the pot because he could put me easily on a busted flush draw.

It is OK?

Hi sharp,

I like your line in this hand. On the river, the board is so scary to KK/QQ that I would have gone for a smaller bet but polarizing yourself by overbetting is a nice alternative. I like this against curious villains.
