      BB: $2 (100 bb)
      MP: $3.68 (184 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.29 (114.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.65 (132.5 bb)
      SB: $1.80 (90 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T T
      MP calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.09, BTN raises to $0.26, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BTN calls $0.34

      The villain looks quite aggressive, though the sample size is tiny, so I might be wrong. As I couldn't profitably call for set-mine, I decided to 4-bet light. Is it a good way around the issue? Should it be 65c minimum, or 60c is fine? I'm folding on a 5-bet shove even against an aggressive player at this limit.

      Flop: ($1.25) 3 4 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN folds

      Hi German,

      Preflop: Why bluff with TT? He gave us a good price to see a flop although OOP.

      We are better off 4-bet bluffing hands with blockers (K or A).

      As played good cbet on the flop and what's your plan if you get raised?

      Hi Bogdan,

      To me it seemed that he raised a lot. I cannot call using call-20, or even call-15 rule. I need to call 9 bb with the stack of 110 bb. Or because we are playing not only for set, but also for overpair value, this is okay to call and look at the flop?

      Flop: I'm c-betting and folding on a raise, since there are no overpairs that we beat. If I called him preflop, I would do the same on this flop: donk/fold. He might raise here with AcKc, but it mostly will be JJ+ I guess.

      What's our plan if the flop came with a high card? I would probably c-bet/fold on J and Q, since we can represent them easily, but I'm not sure about K and A. He will have a lot of aces there, and he's not folding them.
