      SB mucked and won $53.50 ($25.75 net)

      3bet SBvsBTN 13

      1)With his very high cbet% and is high 3bet I make my plan to either raise or bet when checked to on the turn. I choose not to raise flop though in retrospective I think this is a mistake because I don't rep anything decent when I flat.

      Just raise and make him fold his air?

      Preflop: I think this is kind of loose, he doesn't 3bet all that much IMO, and you can consider 4betting.

      Flop: I prefer raising here if you are known to raise here with a very wide range. Your opponent may bet/3bet with AK or AQ and we are crushing those hands, while not faring too badly vs other weaker overpairs.

      Turn: Don't like raising here. Just call and decide on River. he is never folding an overpair so you don't fold stronger hands and you don't get value from worse. Basically you don't achieve anything.
