      Hero mucked T T and won $16.61 ($8.12 net)


      I don't give him much credit for his small check/raise on the flop.
      I estimated his range as low PP, a 5 or a 7 or AK, AJ etc.

      His turn bet did not change my opinion.

      I thought this was worth calling down, but I wondered afterward,
      Should I have taken a more aggressive line?

      Hi,

      Against midstacks I would always 3x pre-flop. They would not give me that much trouble with 3bets that I should worry about my openings and I would rather play bigger pots ip.
      Postflop should be ok, since there are not really too many value hands his flop c/r range. With KQ+ I would raise turn (since half pot bet seems weak to me), but since he would very likely would not fold Qx then just call is fine. He should shut down often on the river

      best regards,

      Would you also call river on blank, and on card which completes fd? If he would donk donk donk, would you also call down?
      "I estimated his range as low PP, a 5 or a 7 or AK, AJ". I would add flush draws, and 68s to his raise range, but also Qx since he is fish (or midstacker).
