      Hi.

      Given that we are oop i think our best action is to 3b and get it in.
      If we were ip ill be more inclined to flat. I think our hand isnt that strong given thAt there are a ton of stronger twopairs and straights so i prefer calling but being oop limits our actions and i think this is barely strong enough

      What range do you put him on when you advise to 3bet and get it in?

      T8, Two pairs, sets and combodraws.

      We are not doing that well vs this range but we have a set blocker and with a pair we are doing fine vs higher flushdraws. Add the fact that he is going to bluff raise here with gutshots a ton or with backdoor draws and we have a lot of immediate fold equity. This is going to be the main source of profit.

      A comparable spot for this is shoving AK preflop. Against tighter 4b ranges we are usually an underdog but this is sufficiently compensated for when we win the 20-25bb from villain's 4bet bluffing range.
