      Hi there. UTG is 16/12 regular after 240 hands, cbetting flop and turn 100% on that sample.

      So my gameplan is to rep a set. It shouldn't be that hard, my calling range is pocket pair heavy in that spot. I have a OESD on the flop and since the guy is barreling a lot (on this sample anyway) I want to x/r him on the turn after another barrel and continue my story on the river.

      I have a few question since I am new to NL25 ZOOM

      1) was my thinking good in general?
      2) is it necessary to do plays like that (not often) or just stick to ABC poker like on NL10 ZOOM?
      3) how do you see my line in that spot?

      Most people would expect you to raise set on the flop and not min-raise on the turn. I think raising flop/turn general is fine and mixing up is always fine. I personally think he would not fold his overpair to your river bet, since he gets too good pot odds (maybe you should take that line with sets :P )

      Generally mixing it up with draws and air, especially ip should be fine. Players are tight and would not pay back too often if they don´t have anything

      best regards,
