Default FT- gettin pwned by CL

Party 33$ regular

5-handed at final table.
blinds 2k/4k ante 100

Hero: 170k
Villain: 416k

one absolut shortstack
one has 11 bb and one 20bb

ive pretty much been runnin over the table so far since villain won several big pots. From then, he 3-bet me almost every hand.
He always reraised this few and i always had to fold so far.
I really wanted to play the win here, i decided to play the bigstack....

Hero opens UTG w/ A8s to 10k
Villains reraises to 28k

i call

flop comes Ah9d6d i check, he bets 36k (62k pot), i call

Turn: Jd i check planning to give up, he checks.

River: 9c i bet 30k into 130k, he raises all in.....



Well, i know this hand has completely gone bad. Pf i should either push or fold, i guess.

flop c/r?
c/f, c/c river?

Villain is pretty good and i saw a decent chance im ahead, but i figured he would bluff me out of the pot a huge percentage if i check to him, so i deciced to make a block bet.

Thoughts?

The call pf is questionable, but with your read I don't think it is a terrible one as long as you are planning to c/r or shove any flop you hit. That being said PUSH on the flop.

If villain is good at all, there's no way that you're ever ahead on the river, so blocking is just spewing chips. You don't have enough chips to bet/fold the river, so if you're betting anything at all, u have to call a shove.

I don't like the raise pre, esp given your history with villain. I think every street is bad, and the river might be the worst.
