      Results below:

      CO didn't show

      1. My thought procces was that he probably have some strong hand, which he most of the time bets so I will ch/r him OTT. If I look on that spot now, I think on such a drawy board out of position could be better to play it straight forward and 3bet on the flop?

      2. OTR I am not sure, if we still have some value, because some 2p/sets he probably bets OTT, so is it better to b/f, or ch/f, ch/c? On such a board I dont see he should shove worse hand and i dont know him so much to say if he could turn some hands into bluff...

      Thx :)

      Hey Katrisone,

      I agree with your thoughts about the flop. It's better to re-raise immediately for value. There are plenty of two-pair combs, worse sets, and pair+draw stuff that may continue to a raise. If you slowplay any Q/T or could potentially either kill your action or give villain the best hand.

      As played I also agree with what you are saying on the turn. Most of the worse hands that would call river are 2pair hands. And if villain thought these were strong enough to raise the flop he'd probably bet the turn IP. Therefore I think your best option is probably to check/fold river.

      As played you have to fold vs his shove, I doubt he's doing it with worse.
