      Hey dzikson99,

      I would call as well because of this.

      250hands are not that much of a sample size. That is why I would not see the stats as a true fact. But I think we should assume villian folds much to 3bets 70-80%.

      If villian opens 35% on the buttom and folds 80% minus his expected 4bet range AK,AA,KK villian should still have a 7-8%range. So maybe we can add QJs in is range from time to time maybe with 3-4 combinations.

      We loose against 99,66,TT = 3x3 =9combinations
      We win against JJ,QQ, and sometimes maybe even KK = 12-18 combinations

      The question is does villian play JJ,QQ overshove flop? KK for sure. Against unkown I would call the flop because we beat many overpairs and thats why I think we have the 36,6% equity we need to call the flop.

      AA in 3bet pot 100BB = never folding on 98% of board runouts.

      If the board is very good for villain's range, i will consider taking passive lines instead to keep his range wide.

      For example when I bet this board against someone who usually 4bets JJ+ preflop and calls many mid pairs, against his Flop raising range we aren't doing too well since we will be facing T9s/sets really often. Sometimes 77/88 perhaps but who knows?

      By checking we induce bluffs from stuff like AQ/AJs/KQs/AK. We also don't have to be good so often when bluff catching (need to win only ~30-35% of the time) as opposed to betting (need a worse hand to call 50%+ of the time).

      With that said, this is probably a bet/shove for me at lower limits. I see people flat QQ/JJ here so often and then just raise their overpairs on the Flop. Seeing 77/88 here is quite standard for this limit as well. So yes, I think bet/call is the best plan here. Nice hand.

      Hello dzikson999,

      Nah, it's difficult to get away whilst the guy is also not the best playing 24/12 which tells us that he has a lot of worse hands in his range and can easily overplay JJ/QQ. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
