      should I be 3betting here?
      I know calling and evaluating turn has its merits, but what do you expect villain to have when taking this line?

      Hello conall88,

      Preflop: Nah, it ain't like a must to 3bet here, although would be possible if we are rather against that kind of opponent who is capable of folding to 3bets easily and as well even if we get called we have a pretty decent hand to continue our play postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: The problem is that when we get raised there, we will be very often against somewhat strong hand, might even be a 2pair type of hand or maybe even stronger. Therefore I might even prefer just Calling and reevaluating on turn unless we could think that he is capable of raising that kind of way as well with TP type of hands. So mainly we will anyways get a coinflip there at the best.

      And for perfect all-in we need there even like 48% equity, and do we get it? I don't think so. For example even against wider range:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 54,814% 54,565% 0,498% 44,937% 99+, 66, ATs, T9s, ATo, T9o
      Player 2: 45,186% 44,937% 0,498% 54,565% JsTs

      We ain't getting it.

      Best regards.
