      SB ($10.05)
      BB ($13.09) 28/21/2.2 he folds very few times to cbet, and much to 2nd barrel, in 3b pot he call all times(4x), one vs me: or/c IP, call ,fold t 99Tr 8.
      UTG ($46.83)
      CO ($14.27)

      Pre-Flop: Calling is an option but I do like 3betting given that you are deep.

      The Cold Caller's range is mostly AQ+/77+, maybe some more pairs and KQs/AJs. His 3bet calling range should be much wider since he would be less likely to 4bet TT-QQ pre-flop and also call more pairs and suited stuff.

      But I think the lower end of his range (KQs/AJs/22-77) isn't so likely. I think he would definitely call those if he was the initial raiser. people don't like to get involved when they have not invested anything initially.

      Flop: We are not really betting for value if we do bet. Though we should have a rough idea on whether we should bet/call or bet/fold. I think he's always folding AK and AQ which is a good part of his range so I think we should just bet for protection and also we can easily barrel or take free cards as we wish. Given that we are deep I think bet/folding is the best option since I do not think he is going to c/r TT and JJ and QQ so often, and he should be weighted more towards the occasionally slowplayed KK+, and some sets and AK/AQ of spades

      Since I expect him not to have AQ and AK anymore after I bet the Flop, I would barrel any Ace and King which allows me to fold out TT-QQ.

      If not I just take the Free Card, we have our 2p/trip/straight outs anyway. I would fold to a river donk on a blank because I think he doesn't have too many busted hands.

      Hello mawaykid,

      what is a "standard" range for coul call to 3b ?

      Depends a lot on the opponent but usually some strong broadways/PPs I would tend to think would be his range. Might even be a trap with KK/AA.

      Flop we need bet for value right?

      Yes, I would definitely Bet it and protect our hand. There are still overcards from we need to protect. Plus our hand should be strong enough here.

      bad tought? Turn is a obv raise right?

      Well, if you didn't CB the flop then why do you want to raise the turn? :)

      Best Regards.
