      Villain is 29/21 from 350+ hands.
      He cbets flop 64% and turn 50%
      Fold to 3bet is 83%

      Call preflop is okay or better to 3bet? I have Squeeze stat on my hud and none of the other players had above 4%

      IPN (Boss Media) - £0.25 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: £25.00
      BTN: £24.88
      SB: £14.37
      BB: £56.66
      UTG: £21.25
      Hero (MP): £26.48

      SB posts SB £0.12, BB posts BB £0.25

      Pre Flop: (£0.37) Hero has 6:club: 8:club:

      UTG raises to £1.00, Hero calls £1.00, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: (£2.37, 2 players) 4:club: 2:club: 7:spade:
      UTG bets £1.50, Hero raises to £3.85, UTG calls £2.35

      Decent flop. I'm wondering if my hand is now too good to raise and better to just call.
      My reasoning at the time was that raising will:
      a) fold out his missed overs
      b) 3bet/get in vs overpairs where I'll be roughly flipping. Best to do this on the flop where my equity is at it's highest.

      When he just calls I'm actually pretty lost. He shouldn't have a range that just calls here OOP unless he's relying on a blank turn to crai...

      Turn: (£10.07, 2 players) 9:spade:
      UTG checks, Hero bets £6.15, UTG raises to £16.40 and is all-in, Hero

      ...which is exactly what happens and now I'm trapped with an osed+fd and I'm guessing my equity makes this a call right?

      Anyone check behind on the turn?

      Happy for you to criticise flop raise size(!) :f_cry:

      Preflop: This is very bad for a few reasons
      He is less than 100bb
      You are in MP with 4 players left to act behind you
      He is in UTG with a range that crushes 68s
      His open raise size is 4bb which is huge

      Postflop: I think you played it fine. Raising the Flop is standard as we have a really strong combo draw with 12 outs and we should continue firing the Turn. When he ships here we are committed so we should just stack off.
