      HEM info:
      SB VP$IP:21/PFR:11/AF:1/SB steal 75%/731 hands

      I called with this hand only because his total and SB steal was very high so i thought that i'm ahead of his range + i had position.

      Flop: he made this pot size cbet with draw+two overs, so he is signaling big hand, i raise 3x times and now i see that still i gave him 28% pot odds and he had 26% equity + implied odds because most of the time i go broke on turn or river if i have hand i'm representing. My question: does he made mistake calling flop raise or not? How should i play in this spot and make him to make mistake, should i go all in on flop or make bigger raise? I'm little bit confused.

      Turn: 9 card now completes straight and full house with T9, so should i call/check behind or raise/broke, bet/call all in?

      Hello valancius,

      does he made mistake calling flop raise or not?

      Yes, he did. :) His odds ain't that great for OESD.

      How should i play in this spot and make him to make mistake, should i go all in on flop or make bigger raise?

      Nah, raising there is totally fine as you did. Going directly all-in will just shove your hand is very strong and he might fold a lot worse.

      9 card now completes straight and full house with T9, so should i call/check behind or raise/broke, bet/call all in?

      T9, ain't a FD. But yes, we can't really Check/Fold here or anything, I'd also Bet/Call there, he may as well play there with some overpairs this way.

      Best regards.
