      i think i would reraise him on the flop and i would fold to a shove . he can do this easily with a draw .

      Don´t like very much 3-bet/fold. By 3-betting I´ve invested over half my stack and get quite good odds to call against two pair (and he might hold some monster draw, like T :heart: 9 :heart:
      Check/shove is so powerful if no draw completes, because I´m ahead almost very pair type hands and it is very hard him to call for example AQ. And if I´m behind, than that sometimes happens. I should some outs, if he has even QJ.
      By 3-betting I have to push turn, since I don´t want to give him any free cards.

      I think a bet/fold the turn after calling the flop is better here, if he reraises you you know that youre most likely behind since I dont think he would reraise you twice with just a normal draw, and I dont think he would reraise you again with something like KQ either?

      But sure, you do give some compelling arguments for check/shove, but personally I dont feel like playing for stacks with just a TPTK.

      I like the line. Bet/fold is not a good option - you invest 50% of your stack!
