      I'm not very good in such pots so should i just try to fold in such situations?

      Hand1:

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $34,3
      BU:
      $28,55

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      BU overall 3B 6%, (7% on BU)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:heart: , T:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,90, BU raises to $2,70, 2 folds, Hero calls $1,80.

      Flop: ($5,80) 7:diamond: , 5:heart: , 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $3,6, Hero calls $3,60.

      Known players:

      BB:
      $35,45

      BB's 3B so far ~7%

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 5:spade: , 5:club:
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0,90, 3 folds, BB raises to $2,25, Hero calls $1,35.

      The 3B is small so i went for setvalue.

      Flop: ($4,65) K:club: , 9:heart: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $2,9, Hero calls $2,90.

      Turn: ($10,45) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $6,9, Hero raises to $22,85 (All-In), BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Rather wanted to ship turn since he shouldn't throw away a Kx and don't want to see a heart.

      Final Pot: $24,25

      1) would personally prefer c/r flop, but since you give him very strong range then c/c is also fine and then c/f turn
      2) Shove turn is fine, but you don´t always have to shove, since he would b/c his flushdraws and shouldn´t have 7x or 8x his 3-betting range that you should worry protecting your hand. I would call him down on any river card.
      3) nh, I would played the same way

      Can you explain why you prefer c/r. For protection vs overcards? I believe that with a x/r here you will be way behind vs his calling range + since he 3-bets 7%, overpairs are a relatively large portion of his full range.
      I can't think of a situation where I think a raise is better then a call.

      Hi,

      First of all we´re ahead against 7% on the board:

      board: 755
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      TT 56.27% 6,267,312 139,320
      7% 43.73% 4,855,608 139,320

      So we should c/r, since we have best hand. Second reason is if you ever want to c/r bluff these boards, you should also c/r for value with overpairs and finally since players usually don´t expect you to c/r overpairs that board they would put you on bluff and may easily shove Ax hands

      Best regards,
