      Hello, villain was pretty much unknown, he was 21/12 after 21 hands. Preflop I'm thinking villains range is maybe 99+, AQ+. Anwyays on the flop should I make my bet size smaller? May keep weaker hands in and also I can easily be all-in by the river. On the turn I find this a tricky spot. Only a set beats us as I don't think villain is calling a 3bet with JT. It's tricky because they are unknown, if they were passive I would fold. Against an aggressive player I'm calling.

      i would squeeze bigger pre being oop and facing an open and a call.
      as for btn's range, i think his range will be much wider than 99+/AQ+. btn will probably be calling the 3bet with anything he called the initial open with as he is ip and gets a good price.

      i think villain has all 22/44 combos, at least all suited JT combos, and some JJ combos. however im not sure he jams these hands on turn, as you are likely to jam rivers yourself.

      considering that you only have to call 4.74 more into ~21.78 we only need 22.2% equity, so i would call off, villain can have strong hands, but also lots of overplayed Jx hands and semi-bluffs

      And there could easily be some QQ/KK hands that have been slowplayed and are now scared of draws coming there. But you could be still ahead so calling there is right.

      Squeeze pre bigger because we are OOP.

      Bet flop bigger

      Bet turn bigger and then it's an easy stack off. Now I don't know if I'm going to call this.

      Best of luck on the tables!

      Most of the time you're up against a set or atleast 2 pair. Not many draws also possible that could be playing aggressive. I think its a fold.

      I agree I should probably squeeze bigger here, but I don't think I need to bet bigger on flop and turn, I don't need to protect against draws (on the flop anyways) and it would scare off any worse hands. Also by betting approx 1/2 pot on flop and turn we can easily stack off by the river

      Hello seanspurs87,

      Preflop: 3bet size way too small, especially vs a min-raise.

      As played
      Postflop: Nothing much you can do there than Bet/Fold the turn, we ain't having much beat there.

      Best Regards.
