      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $0.91
      Hero (SB): $11.03
      BB: $2.00
      UTG: $7.50 (VP 26 / PFR 19 / 3B 0 / ATS 29 / FLS - / CB 100 / FCB 100 / Hands 28)
      MP: $1.11
      CO: $2.20

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has K:heart: K:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.06, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.20, fold, UTG calls $0.14

      Flop: ($0.42, 2 players) 8:diamond: T:heart: 3:spade:
      Hero bets $0.20, UTG raises to $0.60, Hero calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.62, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.8, Hero?

      Using the statistics which we already have for UTG, we can assume that he opens a wide range from UTG, probably similar to ours. Therefore, it is critical that we 3-bet here because we can get a lot his range to call.

      PF: I 3-bet for value, could definitely have bet a bit more here. When UTG calls, we can safely put him on a range of {22-QQ, AK (AQ) and 56s+}.

      F: When he 3-bets us, we assume that he could definitely do this for value with 88, TT, 33 and sometimes with JJ or QQ to see where he is at in the hand. Since the board isn't offering any draws, I call to keep these weaker hands in his range.

      T: UTG bets again, it makes no sense raising here so Hero is left with the option to call or fold. He is getting relatively good odds to call and he can assume UTG would bet again here with QQ and JJ. He would have to give it up on the river if faced with another bet as he can't call 3 streets with a simple overpair.

      Questions:
      • How much is a good 3-bet size OOP when we both are extremely deep (300BB+)?
      • If you call the turn bet, how would you reacted if Villain had bet 2/3 pot instead?

      Hello Raknyo,

      Preflop: At least 4x. :)
      Postflop: Bet the flop bigger and avoid raises. once you get raised it's really guessing game. Obviously if you call the flop then turn is also a blank = you have to call there as well.

      Best Regards.
