      Villain is 61/35 in 26 hands with only 20bb so I 3bet pre flop for value.

      How should I play this flop with 2 overcards?

      Maybe I should bet bigger pre flop and push any flop without overbetting. I check/call the flop trying to make him bet his bluffs. I think check/fold is weak because I'm ahead most of the times against this opponent.

      What's the best line here?

      Hey,

      If that minopener is a fishy player, why don't you shove to rep AKo so he calls with worse PPs so you have a 82% equity advantage?

      I also 3bet bigger preflop to get the SPR below 1 so you can shove any flop. I think here you have 2 overcards so i think shoving is a bit better than check/x because if it would be 1 overcard let's say Kxx board, he might shove any Ax, Qx when you check to him so it is mathwise better to check/call then

      I still prefer shoving with a hand like TT where you have a guarantee you see an overcard on the flop

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Ok. It's ok to overbet on these situations since I think the opponent will call me with worse hands, right?

      You play SSS poker and the 3bet of a SS player is always a shove ;)
