      Here i'm not necesserily that interested about my hand but rather villains valueshove range and hearing about the possibility of potcontrol from his aspect.

      I had been playing really loose and super aggressive during the session and also based on the history I think he thinks I'm pretty maniac-like :D Due to that fact shove is a deceint option with hands like overpairs right? But what about if he were playing against an unknown player? Is it okay to go for potcontrol and just call OOP, say QQ+ for instance? I would personally even consider folding in that spot against a player I don't know. But how about line like cb/call flop-> turn blank c/c-> river c/f?

      Hey, 107s is probably the worst hand that I wouldn't call with, however this doesn't mean that we should fold.

      Using the "best of the worst" as a rule for 3betting is a good argument and employing this strategy is fine.

      This means our 3betting range would look like


      and a couple more bluff combos.

      A fold to 3bet stat would be good, however you only have 331 hands on him so not very relevant in this case.

      As played a raise on the flop is mandatory, 10Jx boards hit sooooo much of peoples opening ranges. They can have 10x, Jx, qq, kk, aa and then so many different straight combos.

      Hello spadek,

      Preflop: Not a huge fan of flatting here either while you didn't point out even what's your plan with the hand, how you can exploit him. Those hands are rather better to 3bet if you want to pick any fancy lines at all. By cold calling them you wont play so profitable unless you have a great plan postflop by which you could exploit him.

      As played
      Postflop: Pretty standard, we are not really planning to slowplay on such a board, raise it up and protect your hand, there are too many cards which could just kill the action.

      Best Regards.
