      Hey,

      Villain plays 20/16, raises 8% (17), fold to 3bet 57%

      I guess calling is not an option because there are many scarecards/action killers.

      So fold or reraise?

      I though 88/77 was still in his range because of his low fold to 3bet %

      But he could also have the nut FD with A :diamond: x or QQ/JJ/TT with one :diamond:

      I think folding is too weak here, you beat all his range except 88 and 77(22 might be also in his range). I would go broke on the flop.

      Don't forget he also has a lot of flopped flushes in his range that have me crushed like Axs (although unlikely since I hold 2 of them) and maybe QT+s. I also think his betsizing seems for value because he has a turnshove left if I decide to call.

      Hi

      Problem is that against flushes you´re dead and against sets you have 10% equity and even against A/k high flushdraws you only have 60% equity.
      Giving all that it should be easy fold, but consider he may also bluffing there I think better play would be b/c flop and then shoving over his turn bet none flush turn.

      Isn't it dangerous to give him the opportunity to check behind the turn en give him a free card?

      So folding > calling > shoving? Or still too weak?

      He can´t really check back turn, since you´re ip.
      Against nit you can consider folding that spot, but usually better is just go with the aces in 3-bet pot.

      Right. But even if he take free card you can be sure there can´t any river card on the river and generally I think players would just shove on flushdraws on the turn to secure maximum fold equity (if they don´t have any showdown value)
