      FLOP
      His 3bet calling range is likely to be AJ+ / KQ / 88+ (basically his whole OR range; I rulled out lower PPs because he wouldn't OR them).
      When he 3bets it's possible that he has AsKs / AsJs / KK - QQ? I'm not sure if he would 3bet AQ / KQ.
      I'm beat only by QQ so I think there are more combos of hands that I beat and a call would be the best move.

      I agree that we beat the majority of his range on the flop but I question whether calling is the best move.would he bet the turn with a draw? Would the same hand that bet the turn be more willing to go all in on the flop or call a flop raise?

      Hi cutegoldfish

      Thanks for the evaluation!

      If I raise and he shoves, do I really want to get it in for 250bb with an overpair? 100bb deep it's an easy shove.

      By calling I would let him keep bluffing at me on the turn/river.

      If we 3bet, we shove or what?

      Thanks again!

      hi,

      getting in 250bb with an overpair is too loose. i did the analysis assuming a 100bb stack.

      with 250bb i think ill be more cautious and call his raise with the intention of calling turns and folding rivers. i think he could bluff at it one more street but usually shutting down on the river.
