      Checked turn because I did not think that many worse hands would call my bet, guess I overlooked the flop 3bet. I would not expect him to have JJ-KK too often here as it doesn't really make sense to 3bet them on the flop, so he either has a set or... a set :f_eek: ?

      x/f turn ?
      or x/call and donk shove river if I hit?
      what about b/f to make sure that he has a set? (but he made me pretty certain with the flop 3bet)

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Flop: Being so deep I don't see him neither 3betting with just overpairs here, most likely he would just go for pot control with them.
      Turn: For the given range I might even be towards leaving the pot alone here, donking wouldn't make sense either cause you don't achieve much, just make worse to fold and donate more money into the pot. Rather let him bet the turn if you assume him having a wider range. If we would assume that he is raising also overpairs on the flop then I'd still continue on the turn cause I would assume that the guy is also betting the turn for free showdown with those hands.

      As played
      River: Not much to say.

      Best Regards.

      So we call flop to play for our implieds if we hit our flush and assume villain usually has a set?

      Nah, I would still Check/Raise most of the times here, especially being deep. Was mainly talking about turn where I might time to time lay down unless I assume him also being capable of bluffing there this way cause you could be against stronger range as set.
