      His line looked so strong, that i thought it was unlikely that he would have a set. There was a lot of 3betting going on at the table so he couldn't just put me on a premium because of my preflop action. His preflop call was an instacall. We're both 16/15 at the table and very agg.


      Normally i call flop and fold turn. But this looked so weird. I think i should also fold turn in these spots.

      You can´t bet/call flop and then fold to tun.
      You either go with your hand to the end or bet/fold flop.
      Being deep I like to bet/fold flop, since he´d probably c/c all the worse hands and c/r with better ones.

      Isn't it very weak to bet/fold the flop in this case? I do understand however that this hand plays bad with such deep stacks.

      Bet/Calling the flop can be interpreted as weakness.

      I lost around 80% of total losses with TPTK/Overpair type of hands so I approach them with caution.

      Depending on my read I'd fold when C/Red or push him (not very frequently..)

      Guess he set Jacks (the play seems like something you'd do with an ok pocket, overpairing the flop)?

      If bet/fold is weak then bet/call, call his shove on the turn.
      Just you´re 200BB deep, don´t expect to be ahead that often.
