      16/10 3bet:16 (just 70 hands), AF:2, wtsd:25

      My main question is at preflop: what can i do with TT/JJ here? I cant really 4bet and expect to get called by much worse (and 4bet/folding sucks anyway, for 100 bb i would do it happily in bvb), folding seems weak, so i just called.

      But i have zero clue how to play the hand then. My plan was:

      - if 2 or more overcard come: check/fold.
      - 1 overcard: check/call one street, check/fold after.
      - zero overcards: check/call twice (even if an overcard comes for turn), fold to river.

      Is this reasonable? Im not sure if this plan is +EV at all.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Calling is by far the best play, other options are just so much worse.

      What's our plan here? Probably set-mining mostly but I think we can bluff catch once or twice on lower boards. The high 3b number is probably due to a low sample size and I'll assuming he's actually tight here despite this being BvB. The only meaningful stat we have on him is his VPIP/PFR which tends to become kind of accurate after 50 hands+.

      Flop: call once and decide on turn

      Turn: Check

      River: I don't get the point of this block bet. I would just check and call.

      "- if 2 or more overcard come: check/fold.
      - 1 overcard: check/call one street, check/fold after.
      - zero overcards: check/call twice (even if an overcard comes for turn), fold to river. "

      i guess something like that is fine.
