      Hi.

      This is kind of a tricky spot. On one hand, when villain checks, I want to say that we have the best hand and can value bet 3 streets with TPTK. After all, why should he check AA-QQ here? Vs a normal opponent, this is a fairly standard 3barrel because we have the best hand here like 90% of the time.

      On the other hand, I see these sort of 50/5 players min-3betting AND THEN checking their overpairs on the Flop to trap ALL THE TIME.

      So I am inclined to think that we cannot 3barrel for value. With that in mind, I probably bet Flop check Turn and bet or call River.

      Thanks.
