      3b broke flop. you are bvb and villain can definitely get in with pair+fd/sd/ nfds/sets/two pair/overpairs etc

      by flatting villain's xr we allow turn to come off, and there are tons we dont want to see, like spades/Q/T/7 etc.

      just 3b broke on flop, especially bvb

      Hey Darkyd10,

      Preflop: Personaly I believe a 3bet is a better option here. Also you didnt mention any reason for a call and on the other hand there are so many hands from what we can get value.

      Postflop: Not really a fan of calling his raise for the given reason there are a lot of cards that we dont wanna see on the turn that could destroy action or make you uncomfortable. So just 3bet/jam( I m more inclined to jam it on the flop) and get the max out of his draws because I would assume a lot od people on this limits are not capable of laying down his draws in such a spot.

      As played:
      I guess I would insta call. Even if he has straight let it be and hope for a good river card. What do you think given your action preflop what do you think he is doing to do with 89,J9,J8,overpairs and lower sets?

      Best regards,
