      Hi,

      barreling general on the turn is fine- since you have some showdown value you don´t always have to turn your hand into bluff and can also c/c to let him bluff/valuebet with worse hands

      best regards,

      So i would barrel then flop and turn for most boards? and then give up after the turn? with middle pocket pairs in general like 55-QQ

      check/call or barreling depends on opponent? if i missed that is?

      And what about lower pocket pairs? they are open raise pre in any position and call 3bet to set mine if I get atleast 1:10?

      Check fold vs a missed board if i called a 3bet?

      Sorry for so many questions

      Hi,

      I would c-bet flop 100% of my range. Depends on my equity I think you can c/f or c/c turn- for example I would c/f smt like 8d9d and likely c/c a lot of medium pp-s. Low pp-s 33-66 are kind of tricky and if you don´t have good read to your opponent, then c/f is always good to avoid turning yourself into calling station.

      And what about lower pocket pairs? they are open raise pre in any position and call 3bet to set mine if I get atleast 1:10?
      - I would open raise every pp at any position, but on thought games you can fold out small pp-s at early position. I´m not really big fan calling small pp-s if I raise early position and there is 3-bet. Unless you hit you should c/f and if players have balanced 3-bet range you also don´t get paid every time if you hit your set, so better is imo just fold.
