      I make standard re-raise preflop. Ideally looking to take down whats already on the table.

      The call makes me think A-9+ 55+

      Villain checks the flop so I bet for value and to avoid being outdrawn on the turn.

      The call on the flop should have told me its an overpair? When villain bet out on the turn I knew I was behind but was really hoping for a bluff.

      Hello Phildini,

      Preflop: Why do you think it's a standard 3bet? You didn't even mention how the opponent does play. We can't be sure that we even are doing the 3bet for value. :) I might even prefer just Calling and playing postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: Wouldn't even bet that much on flop, ~$0,90 should be enough and as played what hands do you beat on turn? Obviously his shove doesn't make sense but can we hero-call here while we even don't know the opponent. For me it might be even rather a fold without knowing that he is capable of doing such a huge bluff.

      Best regards.
