      23/13, steal total 333, 32h

      I think I was having tight 3bet image, and he only minraises which is weak, so I 3bet even such trash. If there would be better kicker I woul call.

      Or maybe this kicker is enought to call?

      Once he called, I am not sure what can it be, but 66-JJ is I think in his range, AQ, maybe KQ.

      When not sure I did not want to cbet with just GS.

      BUt if we assume there are those small PPs then cbet should be fine. But maybe 99-JJ is more likely which has has good eqiuty.

      Hi,

      This hand can be played like you did and be profitable, I'm quite sure of that. That said, calling pre should be doable (cards are high enough with position and odds), postflop you can cbet to make him fold his TT and lower, his A highs that missed, his other air so it will be profitable, same goes for the turn. I don't dislike your play, I don't think there's a big difference in EV just wanted to point out the alternatives. :)
