      I fear I am turning into a calling station w/ big pairs, I think I should be folding here without specific reads right?

      I can't help pressing call on draw heavy boards with overpairs. This example reminds me of the silver strat article on the flop basics for the first example entitled - dangerous board? Not really.

      Since we can give him credit for cold calling 3 bets w/ 22+ 66/55/99 have all got there, he might flat TT/JJ which I'm ahead of but a lot of people might also go nuts and 4bet shove with these hands.

      Turn: 77 and 88 got there and still behind to KK/AA that flat the 3bet.

      Hands I might be ahead of: TT/JJ, A9, FD's. Since the majority of hands I'm facing seems to have me beat, should this be a fold without specific reads?

      Hello muel294,

      There is no way I am going to fold it in 3bet pot. The shove doesn't make sense anyways. When he had there nuts, why does he shove with it? He rather has weak hand than the nuts when he shoves there. And I'd as well Call it there. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
