      Hey all!

      Pretty much unknown, looks solid and multitables

      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!

      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

      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.
