      3-betting for value, as he opens so wide and folds rarely. Also, we`re deep and if I happen to hit a set, it will be much easier to get the money in.

      Plan is to c-bet and give up. Should I make my bet bigger? With such stack sizes I don`t have that much equity by betting only 1/2.

      I think, it`s fine to give up here. TT/JJ might not even fold.

      Don't really like the 3bet here. We don't want to build a big pot with this hand OOP, especially since you are deep and you are likely to get called a lot.

      Considering his small fold to cbet, I don't really like the idea of betting on one street and check/folding the turn.
      We should either bet the turn or check/fold the flop instead. Considering that villain is a fish, I would prefer check/folding the flop.

      As played on the flop, I would consider betting the turn. I expect PP to fold, ace high also.
