      Full Tilt, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, Rush, 6 Players

      BTN: $23.90 (95.6 bb)
      SB: $26.96 (107.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $54.79 (219.2 bb)
      UTG: $20.90 (83.6 bb)
      MP: $25.70 (102.8 bb) unknown
      CO: $10.13 (40.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.20, MP calls $1.45

      Flop: ($4.50) 9 4 T (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.60, MP raises to $5.60, Hero calls $3.00

      Turn: ($15.70) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $9.42, Hero raises to $18.84, MP folds

      Preflop: standard

      Flop: I just call the raise so that I don't scare off bluffs or JJ-KK. Sets are stacking me anyway I guess.

      Turn: I assumed we are both committed now, so after I let villain bet his bluff or worse value hand I x/r to get it in (my minraise covers him). But somehow villain folded for the 16% pot odds lol.

      All ok?

      Hi Memmber001,

      Preflop: Is your standard to 3-bet so small OOP? It's less than 9 BB or 3x. I'd make it 10-12 BB as a standard.

      Postflop: I doubt villain would raise many sets there given we are just 100 BB deep so I agree with your call to let him bluff.

      Turn also played out nicely and there's not point in just calling because he will hardly ever put in the rest of the money on the river without a hand (or may even check back a pair like JJ).

      Good point about the 3bet size from oop. Thanks, I should fix that.
