      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with T :diamond: 9 :club:
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, SB calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.40) 7 :heart: 8 :club: 4 :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.30, SB raises to $3, Hero folds

      His fold to 3Bet range is actually rather strange. At the moment of play I only looked at his fold to 3Bet, which indicated that a 3B is quite possible in this spot so that's what I did. Only then did I look at a note I had made on him that said that he has called my 3Bet OOP BBvsSB with T8s once. So he probably is still capable of calling loose preflop, thus this shouldn't have been a 3Bet, but a fold preflop.

      As played though, not sure if folding with such odds on the flop is the best play. Depending on his ch/r range I could consider calling or pushing, but the thing is I am not too sure whether he is ever ch/r as a bluff in that spot so in order to push I should know something more about his postflop game. Could still push vs FDs (since he is capable of calling suited broadways and even SCs), but could also call for the given odds vs monsters that are unlikely going to lay down their hand if I complete mine.

      I actually think I like pushing since he can very easily have a FD there.

      I think it depends also a lot if he is usually opening 3x or 4x on the SB. If his standard open in 3x then I think 3-betting T9 is not the best play, since he would very often call or 4-bet with better hands

      If it is standard open raise, then mixing it up should be fine (although I think T9 plays also fine just in raised pot- that would leave you option often mess him postflop by raising his c-bets or floating dry flops)

      With oesd and overcards I would never fold that flop. I think best option would be shove- since he would very likely attack that board and has air a lot of times.

      If I call flop then I would get all-in 9, T and ofcourse 6 and J cards. Also if he was making move he would often give up K,A and sometimes blank turn cards and you can take pot down without improving your hand

      best regards,

      Hello Avatars91,

      Clearly we can't count our overcards as outs, the guy is never raising 7x/8x nor worse PPs. So I'd most likely play the same way instead of continuing there. We just beat bluff he is capable of doing that. If we assume that to be true then we should be shipping but difficult to say just from the stats, cause it's still 3bet pot and the Check/Raise might be for normal pots mainly.

      Best Regards.
