      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 102.95 BB
      UTG: 53.05 BB
      MP: 114.65 BB
      CO: 100.5 BB
      BTN: 175.4 BB
      SB: 129.95 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:diamond: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 10 BB, CO calls 7 BB

      Flop: (20.5 BB, 2 players) 4:diamond: 5:club: 3:club:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Turn: (20.5 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      Hero bets 15.35 BB, fold

      Hero shows 9:diamond: T:diamond: (High Card, Queen)
      Hero wins 19.5 BB


      He is unknown.

      I standard 3bet against CO with suited connectors if villian is foldign a lot to 3bets, or if he is unknown because then he doesnt know how often I 3bet.
      Is it ok to 3bet with T9s OOP? I really like this hand IP, but OOP is much harder to pot control with top pair, or get free cards, showdown so I feel I cant do much OOP.

      Is it ok give up on the board? He should call with any hand IP, since he either call preflop Ax, or PP in most cases. Is turn bet ok on scare card? I bet big to discourage AK, AJ, and PP to call.

      Hi mla,

      3-betting this hand is perfectly fine.

      I think we should cbet this flop against an unknown caller. We have 2 overs and a backdoor flush and he can fold overcards here.

      And then we can barrel on many turn cards as well.
