    Villain is a TAG reg.

    I call instead of 3-betting PF to keep more worse hands in villains range.

    I bet flop and turn trying to represent a made hand, the flop x/c seems a bit weak and this flop could be hitting my perceived calling range more than villains MP OR range. I was planning to give up on most blank rivers.

    Kh comes on the river and I make a thin value bet. Villain is almost always seeing 2 more streets with a FD but he is also likely to be betting those OTF. A weaker Tx hand that villain did not want to bet may find a call here but Im not sure if this bet may be profitable in the long run. Any thoughts?

    Hi LR,

    The villain's line is consistent with showdown value type hands, so stuff like A9, 88, weak tens, etc. In this vein I would consider checking back the turn as this card will not encourage folds from his flop check/call range except for the few hands we're ahead of anyway like AQ. And I think value betting the river is good, along with your sizing here.
