      Hello tieppofer,

      3betting preflop of course is fine but afterwards is the question against what player are we against. :) We have shown strength preflop already by 3betting so would he ever even raise the flop with TT/JJ? Doubt that anything worse is going to be in his range.

      So therefore according the opponent we play our hand, either go broke vs loose-bad opponent or just Bet/Fold it even cause I don't see many worse hands in his range. More often people tend not to raise TT/JJ on those spots cause they also know that we have 3bet preflop and our hand is strong there.

      You are using HM so it means you had also information on the guy, according the information you play. :)

      Best Regards.

      Yeah, I didnt have much info on him, but his range was quite loose, considering he only called my 3bet I didn't put him holding KK.

      Thanks, btw :D

      You are welcome but you can't exclude KK/AA here, you will often see such traps.
