      We can find a call here right? I'm putting the villain's range at TT+.

      Hello,

      Preflop I think 3betting is fine.

      On the flop I like cbetting here - board is rather dry plus even if he calls there are plenty of turn cards we can bet on.

      On the turn bet/calling is fine. Even against QQ-TT we have around 35% equity, so we can't really fold here.
      What do you think about check/raising though? Do you think it's any good?

      Best,
      Plamen

      It may certainly have been a stronger line to generate maximum fold equity vs 99, JJ-QQ.

      A check behind from the villain and a brick on the river would mean we have to surrender the pot though in most cases wouldn't it?

      Well sure, but when he checks back I do expect him to most often has showdown value and our fold equity on the turn is questionable on this board against a made hand.
