      On the flop BB is representing a set of 3's or AQ.. AA, QQ and AK he will probably 3-bet preflop, maybe eaven AQ.. So, i called his raise. When I hit two pairs on the turn, couldn't see myself folding.. This was the first hand I played against him.

      I think you overplayed the hand.

      Flop: The bet size is way too big with your medium strength hand. 65% pot seems more suitable. Vs the raise it's a really tough spot. People usually don't c/r the Flop 3way light, so you could argue for a b/f immediately.

      I think this spot basically boils down to whether villain check-raises worse AX hands, or he is only check-raising strong hands. When you hit two-pairs on the Turn i don't think you can fold.

      I'm a little concerned about your huge size cos that would mean that his c/r is even stronger than usual.
