      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $10.15 (101.5 bb)

      CO: $10.23 (102.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with T T
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.40, CO raises to $1.50, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.10, MP3 folds

      Flop: ($3.55) 3 3 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.90, Hero ???

      The player is TAG.

      VPIP: 18
      PFR: 17
      AF: 12.5
      3bet: 11
      CBET: 88,2
      Squeeze: 21
      Hands: 289


      What should we do here?

      Call? We still will not know where we are with the hand. And if it comes a overcard on turn? We will have to fold to another bet. But if it comes a blank one?

      Raise? To try to steal the pot right now? but what will he fold? I think only AK.

      I always have some dificult to play this type of hands.

      Reading his stats, you should know that he will cbet almost always. So by calling his 3 bet, what do you have in mind? Not having specific reads about him and just calling his 3 bet OOP in order to setmine is not an option in my opinion.

      I think raising is bad because no worst hands will continue. I would call this bet. TT has some showdown value here. On the other hand, we are kind of commited afterwards...

      (well, I am not an experienced player, just saying my opinion)
      If an overcard comes and he bets again it is hard to continue. I would hope to check it down...
      Also, why did he 3bet 4x preflop? Had you seen him doing this with high pairs or his sizing is the same with bluffs? Also does he cbets turn?

      I think it is a very good example of how important position + reads are.

      Sometimes i try 4betting small sth like TT, AQ+ vs such aggressive guys just to see what they do. If they are better at this preflop raising game i change tables.

      .
      It was a squeeze, so he made 3x de inicial raise + 1x the cold call. +/-

      Hello,

      Just fold after the 3bet preflop.
      We are OOP, we have a hand that plays relatively hard and also I think that CO's range is most likely to be strong here.

      As played, we have to look at his turn cbet%.
      Basically if you expect him to barrel a lot I wouldn't mind just folding here since we might end up getting owned by his QQ+ or so.
      If he tends to cbet a lot on the flop and rarely on the turn, I'd call here and reevaluate on the turn where my plan will be to fold if he continues with the aggression.

      Best,
      Plamen
