1/3 MD Live, $265 effective, I have AQhh, solid aggressive utg plr raises $15, mp calls I 3bet to $65 call call. Flop is 832clubs, checks around, got a live tell from mp as he struggled to decide to stab, but didn't. Turn is 7h. I shove my remaining $200 into the $198 pot... Dumb???

    Dumb? Yes.
    Have I done similar? Yes

    You could bet less I guess. I dont think hes calling for $100 but folding for $200. Leaving money behind usually looks stronger too...

    Ocassionally you may have the best hand if youre lucky. All hands that have any business getting money in bet the flop. You're betting all overpairs, with or without a club. You're probably betting all AK and AQ with a club. The 7 obviously didnt help... So if they actually think it through and they have anything better theyre probably calling. And they probably have more than just anything since its a 3 bet pot.
    But a lot of players dont think it through! And $200 at $1/3 is a lot, so you might get a fold once in a while, this might get AK without a club to fold... but yeah cant say I reccomend this maneuver.

    It did! And the original pre flop raiser said he folded tens immediately to that... Phewwww

    What was your position in the hand? Were you in one of the blinds? It sounds like you were out of position for the postflop action.

    Unless someone has one or two clubs, that flop looks like it misses a preflop raiser's or flat-caller's ranges, and you as the three-bettor have a powerful range advantage. Yes, it's three ways, and yes, we are out of position, but I think we should at least think about c-betting the flop. It's read- and game-flow-dependent, of course, but I would consider firing another $65 on this flop. It only has to work one time in four to be profitable.

    Yes I was in the BB, yeah a small bluff seems to be legit, they either have a good club, two clubs, or none I guess
