      Hello everybody,

      Here's a hand I recently played on Everest. I've been in a lot of pots before and have been 3betting quite often, so my image is quite aggressive. We're about 130BB deep.

      Preflop: I liked a call better, because I was in position, and he was quite aggressive, so I think I could get alot more value by slowplaying. His 3bet% is 13% btw.

      Flop: I just raised it allin for protection on this superwet board. What could his range here be? 33,44, 77+, 56s (he 3bets alot preflop...). FD with overs, like AhTh+,KhQh. I have 50% equite vs this range, but I don't know if this isn't too wide. He could have 76, 45 Ah7x and SC like 8h9h+, and vs that range I'm definitely ahead.

      What do you think?

      Thanks in advance :)

      You've got 38.8% against this range:

      99+, 77, 44-33, AhKh, AhQh, AhJh, AhTh, Ah9h, Ah8h, Ah6h, Ah5h, Ah3h, Ah2h, 8h7h, 65s, 65o

      I don't think he'll do this with a lot of FD's, except maybe the nut FD's. Reason I say this is your range is very narrow. What range would you put a cold 3bet caller on? Imo this is only JJ/QQ, occasionally some slowplayed monsters but you would 3bet these normally. So if he's a thinking player he wouldn't want to get it in against your range. I think the range I just chose is very wide if this is the case.

      So you have to call after his shove, but I wouldn't want to isolate myself against this range. I would just call flop, and since he's so agressive, let him try to barrel you of your range and hope there's no A/K.

      Personally I would 4bet preflop since you've shown so much agression and he would like to get it in with hands you dominate like 88-JJ/AQ.

      Since MP2 is short and can easily shove with worse range that would put MP3 quite difficult spot I would also prefer calling pf.
      oOstflop I don´t think he would barrel turn that light, so I also like raising and playing for stacks. Making it 16$ seems better than 21$, since then it also looks like you´re raise/folding with air that spot.
