      Hi Guys,

      Villian plays pretty standard 18/16.

      His raise cbet is 50% (1/2).

      Are we happy to get it in here with top two, or should we be weary of his check raise?
      Also when/if I 3bet the flop, am i right to shove or just make it say 2.5x?

      Hello 3prswins,

      Seems to be pretty standard as long we hit pretty much the nuts. Get it in on the flop and protect your hand, he could easily even Check/Raise there something like AK.

      Best Regards.
