      While I like the merge c/r with TPTK vs wide BU openers, you should roughly have an idea on how to react vs a 3bet. Is there any c/r dynamic which makes you able to c/r and jam? or c/r and flat?

      By default, people usually 3bet Flop with overpairs in this exact spot. I would do the same, added with some bluffs and some combo draws. I don't think AJ is doing that well against someone who isn't 3betting Flop with too much air (true when there's no dynamic). Majority of solid players will call your c/r with KJ and worse.

      As played, you need to c/jam the turn to protect against draws. You lose to Ts8s but that's only one combo. And you lose to the occasional set but mostly people slowplay sets cos they are less vulnerable. so you are mostly looking at draws and overpairs and the random gutshot bluff.

      But if you were to count combos on the Flop

      Dominated by
      AA(6)
      KK(6)
      QQ(6)
      18 combos

      Flipping against
      Ts8s(1)
      QsTs/KsTs/KsQs/8s7s(4)
      5 combos

      Slight Favourite Against
      AsKs/AsQs/AsTs/As8s (4)
      4 combos

      I think I'm being pretty optimistic here already. Of course if you think he pushes QJ and KJ then it's an easy shove on the Flop. If he 3bets those hands to "see where he's at" then your play is the best. If he has a ton of bluffs as well then your play is best too.

      Given his stats I'm quite sure I fold on the Flop.

      He had 10 8 o so i was bit suprised. I expected some overpairs and lot off flush combo draws so i diceded to gamble and jam the turn but i was dead alredy and very suprised with such week draw and agrresive move by villain without some specific table dynamics, so i like to here other players opinion.

      Hello dzikson999,

      Flop: Kind of questionable play here, depends a lot our actions and how the opponent saw us. Also about the opponents play, do you think he could be overplaying TP like this? But practically if I go for the Check/Raise then I also getting it in right on the flop than flat-call and reevaluate it on the turn. :) You can easily just give him free cards while he could Check behind on the turn.

      As played
      Turn: As long you went that far there is no other way to play it than Check/Shove for protection.

      Best Regards.
