Villain had clearly been at the Chrismas drinks. Stats were a truly awesome 89/78 with a 83% 3-bet (100% versus me. Yes he three-bet my open every time). Postflop he kept up a healthy 70% AFq (17 AF if you like it that way instead). If you can suggest any plausible holding that he 3-bets, then bet/3-bet/folds on this flop I'd love to hear it. He's getting just shy of 6.5 to 1 on the final call.

Obviously the play is to flat the 3-bet on the flop and then ship the turn. But since when has that ever been necessary?
