      Hello,

      Preflop isolating is good.

      I like your cbet on the flop, but when MP3 check/raises against two players here on the flop, what's the reason for calling here, and then folding on this turn?
      What hands do you think he raises here and how does the 3d change the situation?
      Overall, what we achieved here is to donate him 19bb.

      I think that this is an easy bet/fold on the flop.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I've come to a similar conclusion. Thing is, I find a lot of players tend to 3-bet bluff Ax type hands on this kinda board, and I can't see a good reason to 3-bet an 8x type hand on the flop. Can't really put him on an overpair either after he limp/called pre.

      I assume the only 2 reasonable lines here are bet/fold flop or going for stacks (which I might-ve done with QQ+) but I can never figure out which one to go for because of my overpair's poor playability in this kind of situation...

      Hello again,

      If you think he has a lot of bluffs then just call him down. Stacking off is not going to do the job because he'd fold his bluffs and only continue with better.

      Anyways, I really don't think people would bluff a lot in this spot - we raises prefer, bet quite strong on this board, got a caller and he decides to raise. Usually this represents a very strong hand here.
      And, yet, 8x makes perfect sense here - he has a monster and he wants to put the stacks in.
