      Pre I want to hide my hand strength.

      On the flop it looks great, I go for the check raise but interestingly the bb donks out. At this point I put him on 88/T9/AQ/AJ/AT/A9/A8. I beat more than half of that range but co calls and I want to see what the turn brings before it starts getting crazy.

      Turn is a blank and BB continues. CO folds and here I decide between a raise and a flat. I try and decide if I'd get 1 pairs to call and I decide that if I raise here he'll probubly fold all of his 1 pair hands.

      River basically makes me a winner against all of his percieved range except 88. When he bets out so big I decide i have to just call. With that bet sizing I dont think T9/A9/AT are in his range anymore.

      When he shows with a set of jacks I'm a bit surprised. He had a 20% PFR, but I didn't have a good sample to find out a more realistic 3 bet. Anyways I am "satisfied" with this hand but am still a bit confused overall if I could have done something a different way.

      There is very few situations I see myself getting away from this with an over caller. Suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Hero checks, BB bets $1.18, CO calls $1.18, Hero calls $1.18.

      Turn: ($5.34) 3 (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $3.51, CO folds, Hero calls $3.51.

      River: ($12.36) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $8.14, Hero calls $8.14.

      Final Pot: $28.64.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and kings(A K).
      BB shows three of a kind, jacks(J J).

      BB wins with three of a kind, jacks(J J).

      Hello Verre,

      Preflop: You not really hiding your hand strength this way. :P Rather say that you don't want to 3bet/Broke. Though I would rather prefer 3betting instead unless I am somehow trapping the BB.

      As played
      Postflop: If you raising the turn then you are turning your hand into bluff. :) So you can't really raise there, even calling is sometimes close whilst you are 3way, though as one guy folds should be fine.

      Best Regards.
