      Hello,

      Without any specific information I would just call this preflop.

      As played, having top pair plus FD I would bet/go broke here on the flop.

      Turn doesn't change much, so without information I would call down.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Well I don't have sample on the villain, but doesn't his raise on the flop indicate a set most of the times? And taking into account this is Zoom and players are really tight postflop. So the turn might complete a fh, so my fd is already dead?

      Thanks,

      Rihard

      Well sets are quite rare since I doubt that people flat 66 OOP and we are only left with TT.

      He could have hands like Asx as well, Qx hands too.

      To be honest I don't really like calling the flop here, since it leads out to quite hard turn play and even if we hit our draw we could easily be behind.

      It's weird. First you say go broke, then we might be behind. ?(

      I mean that if we just call here with our hand we don't feel comfortable continue calling off on a spade turn card, since he isn't likely to bet a worse hand there.

      So if we call the flop, it should be probably to continue on non-spade turns and since we folded on such a turn there is no point in calling, right?

      @kymupa, you'd be surprised how many ppl call pp to a 3bet at these limits. At NL10 i see it a loooot, i would expect at NL2 even more

      the thing is why are you willing to bet/go broke ? what worse do you think stacks off here ?

      Well, Asx mainly.

      Also, some weaker Qx and pure bluffs are not totally dissmissed from his range.
