      Hello DrRaab,

      Preflop: I'd 3bet it a bit bigger and not give him good odds to set-mine.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, exactly this happens. Where you gave him good odds to set-mine but if we can get away as long the guy could even have TT/JJ as well here and we went for value preflop? Is the question. As long it's also ZOOM poker I would assume that a lot of players would set mine in those spots and that kind of board is very bad for our overpair. At least preflop if we go broke we are against QQ but in that kind of spot we ain't really anymore against that kind of range and therefore might be even towards fold.

      Best Regards.
