      On this kind of flop, i think, his pot size donk doesn`t make any sence so i decided to bluff raise it with 2 overcards. I think that his range in this spot is mainly air, sometimes 33-55,77,8x,45s,79s and rarely strong hands => I have a lot of FE and ok equity if i get called?

      Does this make sence or it`s spew?

      OTT i hit TPGK and make a small value bet vs 33-55,77,8x. After he check/shove it`s pretty ugly. 97 hits and it`s possible to play a set or a slowplayed overpair this way. And without reads i decided to fold.

      Also should i double barrel any T+ turn without reads or just if i hit?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      I actualyl disagree and think that when he pots the flop he probably has a strong range.

      As played on the turn I expect that he may c/s a lot here with his premium hands that are now scared of a straight coming. I also think he very rarely shoves with say 99 and will likely just call.

      I think I check back the turn and if he bets pot on the river snap fold and if he bets half pot decide.

      I really think these big bets = value.
