      Hey all!

      Villain:
      Pretty much unknown, looks solid and multitables

      Preflop:
      Should we defend TT by default MP vs 3B from the blinds? My main gameplan vs unknown 3betting from the blinds vs my MP open looks like this:
      - Call AK and TT-QQ
      - 4B/broke KK+
      - No bluffing vs unknowns.

      Ones we know he's 3betting pretty wide like 5%+:
      - Call TT-JJ, AQs, QKs,
      - 4B/broke QQ+, AK
      - 4B/bluff AQo, AJo

      Please comment!

      Flop:
      His check pretty much tells me: 'I have QQ/KK' please don't bet twice!

      So my plan is to bet flop and turn. I think I lose value by betting flop this small and I probably should bet like 60% pot

      Turn:
      Looks good?

      I call tt by default and probably 99 88 vs this snall3x sizing when i have position.

      I usually fold aqo readless. If he 3bets rly wide i will call aq and if he 3bets semiwide i may jist use it as a4b bluff. I wont 4b kq and at aj by defaukt but i might sometimes if i think he has some sort of wide 3b range.

      Abt postflop u either 3barrel or give up. He has kk qq weak ax like u said and i think two bets may not be enuff.
