      40/30. 10 hands.
      so similar to the AJ hand, c/push fine here? Dry board and i dont expect too much fold equity so in the end i guess it just boils down to whether or not players bet their overcards often enough here.

      c/f feels very weak and i don't really like cbetting because avg. player will probably fold out so many overcards and continue with all pairs and im getting pretty comitted and i definitely believe that players are more inclined to bluff vs missed cbet than to call/push very wide here.

      thanks :)

      Preflop I like your 3bet.

      This line should be fine here. I do expect him to have quite a lot of overcards here, so check/shoving should be fine here.
      Even if we get called by better here, we still have decent equity with two overcards (that are most likely to be alive) and we have a backdoor FD as well.
