Squeeze spot in which Hero flops the nuts.

Villain is winning and we have some history. I have played 214 hands with him. In a previous hand I 3-bet his UTG open from SB with AK. Flop was 77K. I c-bet. He called. Turned a blank and I c/c. river a blank I c/c his shove and he had ATo (no pair).

He plays 36/30 and he has a fold to c-bet of only 38% (sample is 8).

The UTG player is a bit fishy, specifically that he over values one pair hands and raises dry flops with them.

Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

BB: 100 BB
UTG: 128.3 BB
CO: 265.9 BB
Hero (BTN): 104.9 BB
SB: 129 BB

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has :Ah:Jh

UTG raises to 2 BB, CO calls 2 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, fold, fold, CO calls 8 BB

Flop: (23.5 BB, 2 players) :6h:Kh:2h
CO checks, Hero checks

Turn: (23.5 BB, 2 players) :2C:
CO bets 17.6 BB, Hero calls 17.6 BB

River: (58.7 BB, 2 players) :KC:
CO bets 30 BB

Flop - I messed the flop up I think. It was a 3-bet pot and he has a low fold to cbet. But He is bluffy, so I wanted him to bluff.

Turn. Given my thoughts on the flop I flatted the turn.

River - I am a bit lost. His bet gives him a BE% of 33, so it's a good bet size to bluff with, but why would he when I am completely underepped

I'd appreciate some feedback on the whole hand a river decision.

    No need to 5x 3B IP imo.

    I would CB small with 100% of my range in this spot then just plan to go B-B-B

    You XBed the flop because you think he will bluff = so now just stick with the plan and call.

    You are definitely folding too often if you fold here. There are very few hands better than what you have and he hasn't even really been raising that much.

    V profits with air if you fold 33% of the time, meaning you have to defend over 66% of hands if he is capable of bluffing. You end up in this situation with flush draws, pocket pairs, so many bad hands.

    You call here a massive percentage of the time and there really aren't that many hands better than what you got.

    Thanks for that.

    I did fold. I looked at my PT4 database over last period and I’ve been losing a lot at SD, so maybe playing scared and not wanting to keep losing. I realised after the hand it was probably a bad fold for the reason you say @Digger Nick
