      This guy is one of the better regs at this limit and likes to raise a lot from late positions. I think this is an easy 3bet preflop against this guy.

      On the flop I bet because I'm representing an overpair like JJ+ and I remember thinking that if I cbet the flop, there was a good chance that he would call with something like AK or AQ and maybe a lowish PP, so I thought that if I bet the flop I have to also bet turn.

      Of course on the river I give up.

      He had 99. If this was me, I was folding 99 preflop to a 3bet, and definitely instafolding on the turn. This is one of the guys that I give a lot of respect to when he's at the tables so I was a bit surprised to see his hand.

      Is this just a horrible play from me?

      Hello thebaptist333,

      Depends a lot on the opponent, if he is capable of going loose to showdowns then I might even give up on the turn. Usually if they tend to Call down preflop OOP with PPs then they are very likely also calling flop & turn. Therefore if you Bet the turn then I would also plan to ship the river rather than Check behind. Therefore rather Check behind turn without betting it vs reg.

      Best Regards.
