      BB is unknown, we have no history. Flop is standard. On the turn I decided to 3barrel to get him off pairs lower than T and I expect to get called by AT, KT, QT, TJ, T9.

      Would you have played it the same way? What about bet sizing?

      I think overbet works there better than standard 3 barrel bluff.
      He would usually doesn´t really like to fold when draws missed and no overcards didn´t come on the river, so I´d rather overbet to 12$ or check since sometimes I´m ahead and if he bets half the pot you can also sometimes turn your hand into bluff and c/rai.
