      I thought about a few ways to play this hand;

      1) Call his Re-Raise and take it from there (Worst line imo)
      2) 3Bet push, but I wasn't sure if this looked too strong?
      3) The 3Bet line I took; I now think that Lune 2 would have been best as if he called my 3Bet, I'd have to Push the Turn even if I missed, and I would have lost a fair amount of EV?

      BTN: $16.16 (101 bb)
      SB: $16.49 (103.1 bb)
      BB: $26.33 (164.6 bb)
      Hero (MP): $30.51 (190.7 bb)
      CO: $22.08 (138 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 9 A
      Hero raises to $0.64, CO calls $0.64, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.52) J T 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.12, CO raises to $3.20, Hero raises to $10.08, CO raises to $21.44 and is all-in, Hero calls $11.36

      Turn: ($44.40) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($44.40) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: $44.40 pot ($1.50 rake)
      Final Board: J T 8 K 4
      Hero showed 9 A and won $42.90 ($20.82 net)
      CO showed T Q and lost (-$22.08 net)

      Hey man,

      the problem is that you're so deep, therefore, I think he will have much wider r/f range and he may fold a lot of his worse draws which he wants to raise as semibluff (this flop is great for this) ... I just don't see enough draws he would stack off with :) tbh ...

      his stack off range is definitely ahead of you ... => for me this stack off is -EV :)

      I'd call flop and probably on unpaired turn c-r. :) If he checks good for us too, but we get much more value from his r/f flop range imho ... The turn c/c isn't that bad too, because we can outdraw him and stack him ... The reason why I would c-r is that he will more likely stackoff with worse draws OTT than OTF..

      Hello MattDenness,

      Both ways are fine actually. Our hand should be strong enough even to get it in while the guy could as well even have worse draws there for example with K:hQ or whatsoever.

      Only reason for to play us it differently would be that we are kind of deep and we might not really see him raising with Jx hands here and against strong range our equity isn't going to be very good.

      Best Regards.
