      Both villains unknown.

      Preflop: MP is nearly a full stack so didn't want to ISO myself vs better / turn my hand into a bluff, so just flatted to keep his dominated range in the hand.

      Flop: I felt I had two options:
      1) DB/3b and if called just play b/c or b/f T depending on what card comes.
      2) x/rai, broke. I expected villain to b/c 77+ or good draws, however it seems I am only slightly ahead of this range:


      Board: 2:diamond: 3:diamond: 3:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP3    48.54%  47.64%   0.90% { QQ+, TT-77, JdJc, 3s3c, 2h2s, 2h2c, 2s2c, AdKd, AdQd, KdQd, AdJd, KdJd, AdTd }
      SB     51.46%  50.55%   0.90% { JhJs }



      Therefore I would imagine DB/3b would be the best line vs an unknown since he would probably feel compelled to protect a wider range and then feel committed after raising due to the SPR.

      Hello muel294,

      Preflop: 3bet it value instead if you are playing postflop this way. :)

      As played
      Postflop: What's the reason for Check/Raising now vs UTG whilst you didn't want to do it preflop with 3bet? Especially vs pot size bet?

      Best Regards.

      HI Veriz,

      In answer to your questions:

      Postflop: What's the reason for Check/Raising now vs UTG whilst you didn't want to do it preflop with 3bet? Especially vs pot size bet?


      Just for value on this board. I would expect him to go broke with 77+ and good draws.

      Another question I have for this type of spot: If I bet here I would usually be playing bet/3b-broke, is that okay? Or is it normally a bet/fold without any other reads?

      Cheers
