      Hello cozacu,

      If you are going to overplay this way your overpair here then I don't like your 3bet at all. Why not just flat and play it postflop?

      He will rarely come up with a lot worse on the turn which ships like that. Just overcards but can he even overplay this way his overcards? :D

      Best Regards.

      I did not flat call,because i`m not going to let the guy steal every hand from BU... if i flat call i`ll rarely hit and most likely see overcard on the flop in witch case just c/f is pretty much the way you can go,if you don't like to continue to play your mediocre pair oop... so as played... flop cbet is standard i guess,what to do on the turn?Or if you 3beted and he called how would you play it from there?on flop

      P.S. Flat calling is the way i usually play it... but in this case i decided to 3bet... or you think you should never 3bet 99,in blind vs bu ?

      Well, what do you think how you gonna save more money? :) As you see you most likely lost here money. Unless he is really that bad to go broke with just A high with overcards there.
