      When I call here it's because I'm IP, against two opponents which gives my hand better odds. My question to you is; Do I get committed to calling down with TPGK when flatting this type of hand? It's defo a crycall from my part OTT. My turn play set up the river so that I can't fold, so how should I play OTF & OTT?

      I don't mind calling the 3bet here preflop.

      On the flop I am a little bit suspicious when he bets so big, but we do have TPGK, a couple of backdoors as well, so calling is fine.

      Once he continues betting on the bigger side on the turn, I would folding without any further information.

      Thanks for getting back to me.
      The reason I kept calling was because I heard somewhere that if the turn doesn't change you can't really fold if you called OTF? Anything you ever heard of?

      Well, this is something that can be true in vacuum, but in the real world you can't really use it.

      Lets say that there is a guy who cbets 100% on the flop, but only 20% on the turn.
      So this means, that he is cbetting every hand he gets to the flop with, but only continues betting the turn with his value range. Does this means that you are going to call with a third pair on the turn against this guy if the turn is a blank? No, right?

      So, interpreting this here, we really need to think what worse hands would the guy bet on this turn and why he'd bet them so big. The reality is that people don't tend to bluff on more than one street in 3bet pots so we can assume that he could probably have a hand when he bets the turn for the second time again.
