      He's cold-called a 3bet OOP so that seems strong, though at these stakes thats not always the case. But if this was overplayed, how else could I have played it?

      Hello Scooney,

      Preflop: Don't even like your 3bet in first place actually. The problem is that he has a PFR of 6, which indicates that we at the best flip against his 4bet range. Most likely we even had to consider 3bet/Folding rather than going broke against him.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, obviously not much to do, as you hit your miracle card. Do you really plan to Check/Fold with your TPTK?

      Best Regards.
