      Hey guys,

      I got into trouble with this hand because I knew that his min bet on the flop represents his draw. Well assumed that I have TPTK against LAG or maniac or donk I decided to raise(protection). Well his all in push surprised me a little bit but I was quit sure that his capable of going broke here with just a FD. I was wright but he also a SD with I didnt took into account as it was a 3 bet pot. So you think my steps were right and what would you change even preflop.

      Hello Sikac,

      Well, even if he has a TP or whatsoever. It's most likely a hand which is going to have also a draw in it. :) Against that kind of range and being even somewhat 3bet pot I'd rather just call the flop and be happy to even win the pot than get it in and pretty much at the best take a coinflip here.

      Best Regards.
