      Anon. table

      Forgot to write down his stats, but he was aggresive TAG. Few hands ago he 3bet/called TT SBvsBU.

      So on the flop, i think he doesn`t have overpairs. He can have sets, FD+overcards and some low equity bluffs like random overcards/gutshots e.t.c. I can 3bet/call the flop, but i thought is better to just call and let him hit smth. on the turn?

      After i called the flop, i should be ch/shoving this turn?

      As palyed, i think i must call this river?

      Hi Achilles,

      Given the information we have about villain (his willingness to stack off lighter, even if it's just preflop) would incline me to 3-bet the flop but as you said he most likely doesn't have TT+ so he would only stack off with 8x, 99 and draws which are still plenty in his range.

      However if he is a good aggressive player he won't bluff you with random hands on this flop. He would do it with equity like for example a backdoor flush.
      So as played I'd actually ck/shove that turn because I think he will have a hard time folding a lot of his hands and I prefer that over calling again because we don't know if he can bluff 3-streets (if we know then it's easier to call and call river).
