2/5 AKo bluff river?

Hero ($950) taggy image, lost a big pot vs V where he flopped 2p and stacked me in a 3b pot, no showdowns

V(covers) capable regish player though plays too loose, opening too wide, calling 3b OOP w/A2s in the previous hand

V opens 20 ep, 1 call, H LP 3b AKo (no h) $90, V calls hu

Flop QJ8xhh 200
X, H 75, call

Turn Qh 350
X,x

River 7h 350
X, H?

Line check and river decision thoughts?

Re: 2/5 AKo bluff river?

Seems like V is fully capable of calling 3bs pre light and OOP.

If so, what do you think about barreling at the turn? H is still uncapped here and V may be capable of laying down his non-heart combo draws, heartless 99/TT and small pairs to a 2nd barrel. Surely this guy is betting his Qx and made small flushes on this turn with the flush on board and you having more of the nutted re-draw combos since you 3b pre.

AP: Perhaps you can test Clarkmeister's Theorem here on the river, make a PSB and put him to the test with your range advantage. If you don't feel like gambling, you could check behind because I think you're probably ahead of 30% of this V's opening range as described.

V hand looks like TT/99. Hero has a lot of Ah and Kh in a 3b range, so I'd go $225, or larger.

Flop - I'd go larger, maybe $120ish. Maximizes fold equity and balances our value hands.

Re: 2/5 AKo bluff river?

I’d just check it back. Not the best board for our 3 bet range either.

I don’t always bet this flop.

Seems like a tough spot honestly. I think if we do bet we have to go pretty big like pot or over pot

Re: 2/5 AKo bluff river?

I don't mind your line, generally just check river. It isn't a bad spot for a bluff and throwing in one occasionally is fine. But it's also a super obvious one, you really need to have a live read before it's a good spot. Villain will often have a heart or QX and just be waiting to call your bet. For that reason if you do want to bluff you need to put villain to the test, bet $200-$400.

Flop is not a spot for 1/3rd sizing in a 3bet pot, x it back or go 2/3rd-full pot - you have no heart, so default to x it back

Ranma what sort of board textures are you 2/3potting with?
I'm assuming dry disconnected / paired boards you would 1/3 with

Re: 2/5 AKo bluff river?

I basically never bet 1/3 pot, especially on the flop. I'd check it back or go 1/2 to 2/3 pot.

Check on turn is fine.

River bet 1/2 to 2/3.

$225 or so makes sense on river.
