      Hello,

      Calling preflop is good since we have a decent hand, and also we are in position.

      3betting the flop is good in order to try to isolate against CO.
      When MP shoves we have to call here since even against sets (which I expect his range only to consists) we have 42%.

      While playing deepstacked you should not overplay your two pairs and sets because people are usually tending to stack off for 200bb with the nuts only.
      Also, keep in mind, that people bluff less when you are deep, so if he check/raises the turn and you have top pair then it might be a good time to fold it.

      Best,
      Plamen
