      It felt I had the best hand on the flop since he will be 3betting pocket tens preflip OOP and the only hand I loose to is a made straight.

      On the turn I felt it was either a fold or a big 3bet there and I opted to do the first. Should I be raising instead of checking there? I dont see any sense to it since I am loosing to all of his tens and to any overpair I was beating on the flop.

      Only thing I am ahead there is a draw which will be quite often but how can I estimate which play is profitable?

      Opp is playing 13/11, 3bet/7.1, fold to 3bet/64, wtsd/30, cbet/86, f to cbet/29,

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: Looks like BB's stack is off.

      By default I fold these garbage hands preflop. They are too weak to flop much and even then the hands are not the greatest.

      Flop: Why do you think we have the best hand here a lot? T9 beats us, villain can have 76, JQ, Q9 and 88/99/TT (he is a nit after all so he may not iso much OOP).

      We should always bet/fold in a limped pot like this versus someone like him (we pot it and get raised).
