      Op was an unknown.
      A hand before I 3bet/folded preflop after he raised bu and 4bet big(3.5x). I figured he might not respect my 3bets that much and would make moves on such flops. His minraise on flop didn't make much sense therefore I made semi-bluff shove, since I'm representing a much stronger range than he has.

      Hi,

      I would also shoved flop. He should be quite often min-raise fold his air and against Qx you have 33% equity+ he can always raise/fold smt like 88/99

      best regards,

      Easy fold preflop??? You won't get much respect as you said + you are oop + hand doesn't hit that good. Just wasting money here.

      I like to flop cbet but when he minraises I'd never ever shove here, he always has a hand and we have no FE. He'll never raise/fold imo

      My thoughts were the same. The problem is that he did have 99 there...

      In Zoom especially nl25 people fold to 3bets and squeezes A LOT. Also I didn't think he wouldn't respect my raises before he called there.

      if you shove then think first 10 seconds and shove then. That should give you a little more fold equity, although if he decides to b/c, you likely can´t do anything. You have enough KQ+ and overpairs in your range that he can´t really b/c there always 99.
