      SB 37/9

      CO



      Turn? Stacksize is not the best, little over potsize, maybe flop cbet should have been bigger.
      I pushed, it could look weaker/desperate for him, and could herocall with PPs (TT/JJ), plus I didnt want to see an A/K rivercard, which could kill the action.
      Of course slowplayed AA/KK and sets beat me, but I dont think I can get away from my hand on this dry board.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: Fix your 3bet size, you are giving decent odds for them to set-mine vs you. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Well yeah, exactly this even happens. What kind of hands do you think he is calling you on the turn? Especially having W$SD 62%, do you ever see him ending up there with JJ?

      Best Regards.

      Do you think 4x (3$) would be a proper amount here? I also want to ask, because my overall 3bet frequency is quite high (~8-10%), and this way I also have to 3bet larger with my bluffs, which would make them more expensive. Or balancing is not required on NL25-50, so bigger for value, smaller as bluff?

      By the way could you open the hand, cause I might skip it if it's not open, thanks. :)

      Being IP I'd still do it something like $2,50 or similar, especially as you mentioning that your 3bet is still kinda high. Though I'd not use such a sizing, you are giving him easily Call15 rule and also he can Call you with pretty wide range here.

      I might start adjusting a bit more on NL50+. Correct, we may talk about real balancing on limits as NL100+ I'd say, you wont see that many exploitments done on those limits.
