      Hi veriz,

      Is calling here is good enough for the call20 rule? I've got like 12:1, I know I could call up to 7:1, but not sure since it's only a pocket tens. Or it's definitely a call since I raised from UTG, I mean this should give me a better implied odds right?

      id never call here. unless he's a super nit or were 150bb+ effective.

      Since in micros players usually 3bets for value, no need to defense, simply let go.

      foldong to 3bets in micros 65%-70% isnt a shame.

      You're UTG so your range is pretty narrow, so his range has to be very strong to 3bet. It depends how disciplined you are on a 227 board, stacking off with an OP post flop after pre flop action is a leak many players have, so folding pre isn't bad at all. However post flop if you do flat his 3b it's mandatory to take a pot control line, regardless of most boards. If villain checks back 227 boards for example, you can lead safe turns for protection against his few outs, but folding if raised is standard. GL, Paul.

      Hello cpers,

      Well, the problem is that you might start to overplay your hand when having an overpair. For that given reason rather fold it. Usually for 3bet pots we use Call15 rule and we get here like 12,8:1 which isn't that bad but to avoid marginal plays postflop just fold it being also OOP.

      Best Regards.
