      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $21.03 (105.2 bb)
      UTG: $30.52 (152.6 bb)
      Hero (MP): $41.77 (208.9 bb) Hero seems solid tag in villains eyes
      CO: $36.96 (184.8 bb)
      BTN: $6.30 (31.5 bb)
      SB: $40.92 (204.6 bb)

      Preflop: Villain is CO with 8 :heart: 8 :club:
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.80, CO calls $0.80, BTN calls $0.80, 2 folds

      Flop: ($2.70) Q 8 A (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.80, CO calls $1.80, BTN folds

      Turn: ($6.30) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.80, CO raises to $11.40, Hero raises to $39.17, CO calls $22.96 and is all-in

      River: ($75.02) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      NOTE THAT 88 ARE VILLAINS CARDS!!!

      I wanted to show this hands as villain's side of view because I was not sure how I would have played it if I would have been in villain's shoes.

      Hero seems solid and could have absolutely QQ,KK,AA in his range. Maybe even JTs with bdfd on flop. So, what is the best line to play bottom set here when we are almost 200bb deep.

      Heya,

      From villain's perspective this hand is a bit overplayed vs a solid played imo. In order to do this he needs you to like always overplay AK, possibly some AQ as well being 185bb deep. It's so unlikely to happen imo, especially given a turn raise where he reps kind of no bluffs (maybe QT, KJ type hands?! but haven't found aggro enough people.

      In short, he overplayed vs solid TAG given deep stacks.

      What do you suggest to be the best line here for villain? Calldown, or raise/fold turn?

      I like sometimes raising flop (depends on how I think PFR will react as in, do I look like random air in his eyes?) or definitely call down any blank.. definitely fold J and T, call non A, K, Q for sure and well.. have a tough spot on A, K, Q, probably call Q because AK bets, hard to say on K because AQ doesn't bet anymore imo.
