      Hero mucked 3 3 and won $11.57 ($5.50 net)
      SB showed A T and lost (-$6.07 net)


      Flop cbet can see a call from overpair. My plan was to bet T and R. If R comes ugly I would fold (in theory).

      T comes not so good. When he c/minr I was like "fuck, he's not doing it with overpair". I can because...well I call. (no plan on the R: "we'll see how much does he bet")

      R comes super blank. He goes for super nice inviting vbet. Can he have A5 here? I'm almost sure he isn't doing it with 2 pair. Was hoping to see 22 and some overpair.

      What do you think about this hand?

      Hi yaxkukmian

      TURN
      I think calling is fine as you have good implied odds if you improve to a FH.
      However, I assume we are always behind here vs 55/A5.

      RIVER
      It's a clear value bet on the river, imo. You beat only 22 and a complete bluff vs many combos that beat you (56/55/A5/maybe 66). It's a tought one, but it's a fold (for me).

      Best of luck!

      Hello,

      Why do you raise 2.5bb preflop?

      I like your both flop and turn bets.
      When he raises the turn I like calling.

      As played, I think the river is rather a fold here. Against 22, 44-66, A5s we have 16%, and if we remove A5 things aren't great either, as we do have only 20%.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I mix it sometimes I r 3bb sometimes 2,5bb. From EP our range is strong and even if we face multiple opponents we're not going to lose much OOP with this kind of hand.

      In general I do 3bb however.

      Tnx to both. Agree with R fold but I couldn't do it :)

      When our range from UTG is strong we should be looking forward to make it bigger rather than smaller as we are going to build a bigger pot with a stronger range.
