Villain BB: 1500$ clean cut white 25 yo regular that seems to know all the waitress' and dealers. His hair is combed like a young Elvis. He plays a very solid TAG game from what I've seen.

Hero BTN: 975$ 25 y/o baseball cap, TAG with a good image.

Dynamic: I've been at the table with him for a good two hours and it's a very soft table with two big spots. He has not 3bet me a single time and the few pots that we have played together had been pretty standart.

Dealt to hero: Qc 3c

folded to CO (60s loose passive fit or fold guy) who limps, I make it 25 from the BTN, villain calls from the SB and CO folds.

FLOP: Qh Tc 6c (pot 60$)
BB checks, Hero bets 45$, BB raises to 115$, Hero calls.

Turn: 4s (pot 290$)
BB bets 140$, Hero calls

River: 5h (pot 570$)
BB checks, Hero checks

    What range are you putting solid TAG villain on who calls out of the blind and c/r on the flop? Of the hands that beat you, I would think AA, KK, QQ, TT, AQ, KQ, QJ, and QT are all within his range, although some combos of the big pairs should be discounted as he may re-raise with some of those combos pre-flop.

    Of the hands that you are ahead of on the flop that he takes the same line with (call pf, c/r flop) are KJ and Axcc, maybe 98cc (double gutter, straight flush draw).

    I think you have enough equity against most of the entire range that you can call the flop c/r. However, I'm hating the turn bet, as I don't get any more info about the strength of villain's hand, especially if villain is capable of taking this line with the nut flush draw as well as sets, two-pairs, better top-pairs, and over-pairs.
  • The range u said looks good...but I think he calls flop with QJ/KQ most of the time. OTR I think only AQ or KQs has me beat but unfortunately I feel it's a bit too late to apply some heat. Some people told me to Click it back on the flop in order to freeze him and see both turn and river.
  • Probably absolute maximum fold equity can be achieved by raising the turn, although I'm not a fan of it. Seems to me like he has AQ or KQ and I am definitely not bluffing the river after you just call flop and turn. I am also not a fan of 3 bet semi bluffing flop although the clickback is somewhat interesting. Problem is that he is probably just going to shove QT.

    I've gone back and forth with raising the turn to achieve maximum FE and ultimately believe it is not worth the variance.
