      MP1 wins with three-of-a-kind, nines (9h 9c)

      Should I believe him when he reraises on the flop? He can't have a draw on this flop so I should probably believe he has a set or maybe K9. If this is correct, I should have played bet/fold on the flop.
      After the 3-bet I'm committed so I have to call.

      Thanks in advance for your feedback.

      He coud have Ak KQ KJ And He coud think that you c-bet this flop almost every time and coud bet A9 T9s or somthing like that,. If you ship only thing he coud call whit is AK that you beat.

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Well, the problem is that the guy is super passive. Do we really expect him even to raise with Kx here? While the board is super dry then it's even unlikely him to have any kind of draws. For that given part I might even make a crying Bet/Fold unless I expect him to overplay TP type of holdings.

      Best Regards.
