      528 hands, 25/23, 3bet 11.
      I saw him 3betting only with 88+ and AK which means he calls me with AT-AQ, maybe KQ, I am not sure what midstack regg does with 22-66 but I assume he folds it.

      So usually against midstack, I play check shove, when I hit top pair, and they really dont like to fold once they put money in the pot. I play also check shove with fd, OESD, with AK, gutshot plus 2 overcards and so on.

      Hi Mla,

      Your strategy here is actually fine given our read (3-bets 88+, AK) because he rarely has a better hand than ours.

      I doubt he will have (m)any 3x or 7x hands and his range is mostly Ax or other broadways.

      Well played imo.
