      Hello!

      Maybe a 3bet on the turn wasn't the best move and calling would be better, but I decided to go broke there because I have a note on him that he once called a 4-bet on SB (before in the hand CO 4-bet MP, who 3-bet UTG's raise). So, he is probably able to do rediciolus moves. Also, I don't believe him to have dueces and the only thing he could represent there are pocket 8's or pocket 10's. Anyway, I think calling would be better, since we are both deep.

      BTN: 27/14/67/100(1)/2,2/114 (VPIP/PRF/FvFlopCB/RvTurnCB/AF/H)

      Hey Alleen86,

      2-barreling for value is certainly fine here since there are worse hands that will call + available draws.

      Vs turn raise the standard option is just to fold here. The fact you are deep makes the situation less favourable. Firstly it should tighten villains raising range and secondly it increase the reverse-implied odds you have.

      If he is crazy then perhaps you should never fold. Not sure if the fact that he once called a 4bet in SB is enough to assume that he is raising anything but A2s/88/TT here. If you did decide to continue with the hand I also agree that flatting turn is better than 3betting.
