      What is the best play here? Don't think he will bluffraise this board, he doesn't raise much anyway, so I expected no FE, can we call here oop? Our equity is good, but not good enough against his broke range I think. Can we raise on the turn, try to rep a 9x ? Or just call because of the odds, not sure if he bet/fold with a set, doesn't make sense to me, he has to bet/call if he choose to bet, otherwise just chb.

      Hey D,

      This is a pretty standard spot to 3bet and get it in because against a lot of his range, your gutshot is live but it will lack playability. You have monster equity on the flop against his range, you are at 45% or so and with the money already in the pot, getting it in is better instead of calling and having a huge equity drop on a lot of turns.

      I don't think we have that much against his range. What do you think about this? Oh, and he raises IP vs flop cbet only 3%, but it's not shown on the main popup, so IP he likes to call more and not raise for thin value with let's say AJ.

      He plays on the looser side so IP with the fish I can definitely see the hand types you gave him but I think you missed a few..


      Board: J:club: T:club: 8:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    39.33%  38.33%   1.00% { Ac7c }
      MP3    60.67%  59.66%   1.00% { JJ-TT, 88, Q9s, JTs, J8s, T8s, 97s, KcQc, Kc9c, Kc8c, Qc8c, 9c8c }




      Mostly, if he has Q9s, he has Q8cc as well in his range and hands like that. My equity fr you was a bit off because your gutshot is not as clean as I initially thought, however, the best EV play is still to stack off once you invested so much and you can still have some folding equity. With an approximately 40% equity against all his range, possibly folding equity (though very unlikely, I agree) it's hard to call OOP to fold turns since you never get the odds to really call without implied odds for 2 obvious draws.
