      Villian is a 43/25/20 after 40 hands. His line stinks of a bad player with AK or AQ who cant fold a low card flop imo.

      Hello Verre,

      What's the purpose of Check/Raising on the flop whilst you just make worse hands to fold and better continue. You kinda turning your hand into bluff so should also barrel the turn to get rid of his JJ-KK holdings.

      Nor don't get the Check/Min-Raise. Could you explain your thoughts?

      Best Regards.

      Is the preflop call OOP MP3vsBU with this little information on the opponent not rather questionable?

      We are getting super-good odds, so yeah it's fine. :)

      Given that it is a BUvsMP situation where his 3betting range is likely not as loose as it may be BUvsCO or blindsVSsteal, are we assuming we can do it even purely for set mining since we are getting Call15?

      Or is it still the case that we would be better off folding small pairs instead of setmining with them in this spot because villain still may have some sort of a bluffing hand as Axs and thus our implied odds for hitting a set decrease, whereas TT still has some playabilty and we can play it postflop knowing that villain may still have for example A3s, which has only 1 overcard?

      Or in other words: it's not that always that we'll be up against AQ+, JJ+ all the time and thus will often be in a tough spot OOP even with an overpair. His overall 3betting range may still have weaker hands as well, and against those small pairs decrease in value but TT can be playable.

      It's a long text I just wrote, but just point out if there is something I missed :)

      Set-mining, playing as overpair. :)
