      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has 7:club: J:club:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.62, fold, BB calls $0.37

      Flop: ($1.34, 2 players) J:diamond: T:spade: 7:spade: BB checks, Hero bets $1.00, BB raises to $3.00, Hero???

      Hey! We have only 5 hands on the opponent. He is fullstacked, probably a reg. Flop is a clear cbet. Problem now is when he checkraises us, HOW can we estimate a proper range? I mean he probably has a bunch of draws in his range, but what about sth like AJ (when he puts us on a draw, which we can have reasonably often)? I gave him JT, 98, 77,TT,JJ, all OESD's, and some flushdraws.

      Board: J:diamond: T:spade: 7:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    54.20%  53.65%   0.55% { 77, JdJh, JdJs, JdJc, TdTh, TdTs, TdTc, KQs, Q9s, JTs, 98s, AhJh, AsJs, KsJs, QsJs, AsTs, As9s, KQo, JTo, AdJh, AdJc, AhJc }
      MP3    45.80%  45.25%   0.55% { Jc7c }

      The Hand actually continued like this:

      Flop: ($1.34, 2 players) J:diamond: T:spade: 7:spade: BB checks, Hero bets $1.00, BB raises to $3.00, Hero raises to $8.80, BB calls $5.80

      I put a question mark behind our initial gameplan on the turn.. a :spade: would be bad, a 9,Q,K,A (maybe a J).. I mean, with what should he stack off when we push? And how to behave in such situations where it actually HURTS giving a freecard but at the same time having only potsize left?

      Turn%s: ($18.94, 2 players) Q:diamond: BB checks, Hero bets $16.85 and is all-in, BB calls $16.15 and is all-in

      the range you gave him seems somewhat reasonable. Maybe he's more polarized with his flop CR range and doesn't have AJ but I think it's fine to include that.

      I think 3-betting the Flop may be an overplay, especially if you find that you are an underdog vs his flop CR range in the first place. You should only value 3-bet the Flop if you think you are a favourite. So I would just call the Raise here.

      As played you should jam the blank Turn.
