      Hello!

      Zoom poker.

      Pre bluff 3bet is not the best.
      As played, what was the best moove on the flop. I think there is a lot of bluff, so I cant fold. If my plan is bet/call, there are a lot of overcards in his range, so I have to protect, my choose was the push. And to top it all, against overpairs I have 20% equity.
      Was good my play?

      Hey Bosiati,

      This is the second hand I saw that was similar. (K7s). If you bluff preflop and you flop a dominated top pair usually the best option is to check. A secondary option is to bet very smaller for value (like, less than third pot). If you do get raised you should usually just fold.

      However if you check it's usually ok to bluff-catch one street. Sometimes you will even improve.

      Here on the flop I would just check. Check/folding is fine. You raised preflop because of your direct fold equity, already the situation should be profitable. This also means that when villain does call he usually has a stronger range because you should be targeting players with a high Ft3bet.

      Against slightly more aggressive players who will fire flop as a bluff vs missed cbet you can check/call 1 street with K9 here using it as a bluff catcher. Vs 2 barrels I would fold though unless you spike K or 9. Hand is definitely not strong enough to 3bet shove flop.
