      Would you play it differently? (Turn?)...

      On the turn I was pretty sure he has set as he won't check 99+ on the turn very often.
      On the river I thought about his calling range on my bet ... If he had some flushes = no call
      99-QQ very unlikely
      AA, AK, sets... I didn't actually count two pairs as his raising range isn't so high

      So I went just allin and made a quite big overbet because I was sure I can make the most value from this move .. Was I right? Or is it better to just raise 3/4 and sometimes take call even from 99-QQ?

      Thx veriz :)

      Hello KillerFishes,

      It's a 3bet pot, he made a mistake when he Called for set mine preflop. Therefore I expect him there as well have a lot smaller PPs as well and we can even bet the turn and shove the river. But as played shoving should be somehow considerable if you take him as a very loose opponent who is capable of Calling light. Although as you said he is 8/3, he will rarely Call such a shove with a lot worse, even not a overpair I guess. Depends what's his WTS.

      Best regards.
