      Hi Double2,

      Preflop: How does CO react to 3-bets? Can we not 3-bet for value there given his 2.5x raise?

      Postflop: As played I would bet there as well to try and take the pot down given that the PFR checked (and he is almost always folding).

      As played I think we should bet bigger on that river. It's very likely that no pair will fold versus our bet and a large bet polarizes our range and gets us more value and should get us called teh same (or even more).

      With 99-TT you can play similarly because I doubt villain will have many Kx or JJ+.
