      his range is so wide i didn't expect him to call but once he did i just shut down. is this too spewy? i can't call OOP so i just went for the aggressive line.

      would prefer a 3bet pre. any info on villain ?

      once you raise flop, you need to continue on that turn, if you don't it will look like you're trying to be aggressive but don't exactly know how to continue once he calls. Always have a plan for various turns when you raise flop.

      i guess i don't have too much experience with plays like this, but i didn't see him having many strong hands in his range on this flop and he was betting 100%. other than that, no info on villain other than he's been somewhat active and he was opening up in LP quite a bit.

      my plan was to shut down if he called, but maybe this is a terrible plan.

      no problem ;) that's why we're all hear, to learn :D

      if he is opening quite a bit in LP, adjust and 3bet him more, not only with your value range.

      ok, but if you raise flop then, be prepared to continue on a lot of turn cards, cards that pair the board, hearts, etc. You cannot raise that flop and then check that turn. if a villain does that to me(unknown or weak reg) i will insta-bet almost my whole flop calling range, because his line is so weak and he folds soooo often, just like you did

      hope that makes sense

      i mean i did think about barreling here but the pot would have been huge. what do you think about X/C flop and X/R turn line?

      does X stand for bet or check ?

      x is for check.

      I would likely 3-bet pre-flop, since 66 is doing fine against steel and you can also take down pots postflop without hitting your set.

      On the board I would have lead out flop and turn for value. If you want to c/r then it is also fine, but would put you on difficult spots if you miss. I think 7 is not the worst turn card and now gives you boat or quads (if you were raising flop with set), so instead of c/f I would bet out turn 2.80 threatening him my all-in river shove. Even overpairs would often fold there without any reads.

      best regards,
