      hello guys,

      Tough hand imo :(

      Stats:
      23/22/119h 2/8 resteal in bb and 6/8 fold. 14% total 3b. This is the 3th time vs hero. I don't know wheter he folds to 4bets or he 5bets light so I just call pre.
      50% overall cbet so far with 0/1 in 3b pot. No turn info

      Turn:
      I think calling twice is kinda std these days. I was also thinking about a raise to make him fold overpairs but I wasn't sure this was going to work out because he'll look at me as een aggro nl50 reg who is capable of making plays.

      River:
      I didn't understand what to make of his sizings... And because of his high 3bet% to me I got suspicious and called it off. Dunno what is best

      Hi.

      Preflop: Just 4bet it, hope he suspects you are getting frustrated and you can expect to see some light 5bet jams these days even at NL50.

      Flop and Turn calls seem standard. On the River, you are at the bottom of your calling range. So fold these hands, and consider calling with JX.

      When we are unsure about our decision, try to use a calling frequency based on game theory. So we just call the top of our range and fold the bottom of our range.

      Thanks.

      Haha I was thinking about this hand yesterday and that was exactly what I was thinking !!!

      Hmmm TT could be 4b/broke but I think it's not supergood since he will give me some credit for my first 4bet and not likely spazz out?

      Well it would have been the same result like now :P

      The thing about pocket TT is that it doesn't play all that well postflop. It's still a lot better than 88 and 99, but we get overcards so often postflop.

      Add to the fact that it is faring very well against a wide preflop range, and there's the offchance that your opponent shoves lighter than usual, like A5s or 22, and you have a good 4bet/broke spot.
