This is a 3bet pot. Do you think he is ever min raise/ folding 100 deep? Absolutely not. He is pot committed meaning it would be mistake for the OP to call/ fold and the villain to min raise/fold.
And its never going check turn, check river ever.
its not a bad bluff at microstakes, as people are sitting there thinking 'i have king high and someone just raised me on Q33 (ie, a board that hits **** all hands), i better fold because king high doesnt beat anything, and he must have something, bc he raised'.
in other words, he doesnt need to rep anything, bc nobody thinks that hard.
if i got raised on this board, by an aggro or very competent opponent, AND i had air ie no showdown value
i click it back here, because decent opponents who know this is a good flop to x/r bluff will generally do it by default (and have a higher-than-avg flop x/r frequency), and clicking it back on them is the counter to this
and read my post again braj,
1. OP is never call/folding. OP is bet/folding OR bet/call, call, calling.
2. I probably have a few thousand hands i could filter for in my DB where this is the flop action and the turn goes check check, river action whatever, and villain shows complete air or an underpair to the flop
