      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Just fold it preflop without information on the opponent. I don't really like the Call against unknown.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, not much you can do. Often times when he Checks behind on such a board it means that he is likely giving up and has worse hand than you. You might even get value from some Ax type of hand which could Call for the GS.

      Best regards.

      Okay, not calling 3bets with small PPs is the right way to go ok ? :D

      Usually the problem is that we can't set-mine with correct implied odds and as well when we have an overpair we might put ourselves into difficult spots and could do a lot of mistakes. If you had some reason for a Call then mention it. :D

      Not really, I used to think like - hm, 99 also has some value as an overpair. But you are right that it could become difficult to get away from it and that could cost me a lot. Probably was a leak.

      At some spots definitely you can think like that but not against unknown opponents.

      Definitely, having position is like winning the hand preflop. :D
