      MP3: $69.91 (139.8 bb)
      CO: $36.39 (72.8 bb)
      BTN: $40.86 (81.7 bb)
      SB: $53.65 (107.3 bb)
      BB: $66.29 (132.6 bb)
      MP1: $38.16 (76.3 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $50.75 (101.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 7 8
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BTN calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($3.75) T J A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.66, BTN raises to $5.32, Hero raises to $15.96, BTN calls $10.64

      Turn: ($35.67) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $33.29 and is all-in, BTN calls $23.40 and is all-in

      River: ($82.47) T (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $82.47 pot ($3.00 rake)
      Final Board: T J A 5 T
      BTN showed A J and won $79.47 ($38.61 net)
      Hero showed 7 8 and lost (-$40.86 net)

      VPIP: 24, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 188

      I wanted to go all-in on the flop here with FD+GS (both clean vs his stack off range IMO, maybe the GS wasn't completely) but that bastard decided to call and make me cry on the turn because of my missed equity.

      But at that time I really didn't have the heart to fold as he was left with 23.40 on a 35.67 pot.
      And I just got it in.

      Sigh, I hate situations like these.

      Hi.

      You should note that you have the idiot end of the straight. I don't think 3betting the flop (despite having a combo draw) is a good idea. Just flat and hope he is bluffing or you hit something.

      Note that his value range is also pretty wide on this flop. So many combos of JJ TT JTs AJ ATs KQ, and some higher combo draws like AcQc.

      His min-raise also makes it less favourable for you to 3bet and more favourable to call (less dead money to take down, better pot odds for calling).

      Thanks.

      When his value range is wider (which is what I thought), shouldn't I want to get it in more in theory?

      I don't think his smaller raise size necessarily makes his raising range on the flop that much weaker. His AF is 1.0 and I think his flop raising range is strong anyway. Also, if he has more AX hands in his stacking off range, that's bad.

      3betting Flop becomes better if we expect him to fold a lot. but if he never folds AX, that's bad cos we are an underdog against AX.
