      fi 21/9/2. fold2steal BB 42%. fold to cb OOP 50%, raise 25%. 4.3 AF, 24 WTSD.

      3bet flop or call? if call, push on any blank turn?

      on a sidenote: i've realised ppl dont really push as wide in these games as I would've expected vs me. so im having some problems how to play mid-pocketpairs. obviously player dependent, but if facing what seem to be a regular tag without other reads or stats.. should we generally go for 3b/folding with the intention of c/pushing lots of flops (which works great for me, most always gets bet and no credit with repush) or should we be looking to flat more of them preflop.

      thanks for evaluating :)

      Preflop is an easy open raise.

      On the flop, I would rather go for bet/fold here unless we expect him to raise here a hand like QT.

      As played, shoving the turn is fine.

      In these speed games people usually don't go broke really light, so we can easily fold mediocre made hands against aggression against unknowns. I would like check/shoving with a smaller SPR, but when the SPR is like in this spot, I would usually go for betting on one or two streets.
