      MP3 was 19/11/6 over 143.

      Should be a fold preflop. Or at least a 3bet.

      Somewhat big cbet but I have TP so a call.

      Again, biggish cbet, so I should fold. It is likely he has OP/set. I don't think he value bets worse here.

      Was going to c/f but thought that my line looks kind of strongish so I could c/raise bluff.
      I could rep T9/99 or some slowplayed sets.
      I need this bluff to be profitable at least 50% of the times.
      I guess I do have some FE vs AT/QQ-JJ.

      So #1 fold preflop, #2 fold on the turn. Not sure about river.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      Preflop is not a defend. Might just about be a bluff, but mainly just a fold. Vs a 19/11 MP guy even your bluffing range should be pretty strong if constructed well.

      I would check/call flop especially if villain has high cbet %.

      I would check/fold turn. Despite having TPGK you are likely behind villain's double-barreling range here.

      In theory I like river raise, looks very strong. You may slowplay sets on this texture. In practice I don't like it that much - nitty guy just fired three barrels at you, possibility he's not folding anything at all.
