[NL2-NL10] NL5 3-bet pot TPTK

      Should I have just bet/folded the turn?

      Pre: I have no calling range currently from SB so it's raise or fold. I raise vs. UTG as a bluff. Given he's not a full stack I make it 55c which gives him bad odds to set-mine (!). KK+ would probably 4bet and maybe QQ would also.
      Flop: I hit TPTK and bet for value vs. worse Jx, lower PPs, AdKd, AdQd. At this stage in a 3-bet pot with TPTK are we obliged to go broke? I kind of decided at this stage that all the money was going in, esp vs. a 80BB stack.
      Turn: Again, betting for value, planning sizing to give a call-able bet on the river. When villain raises I'm pretty sure I'm beat but given the price can we fold this? Deep breath, cover eyes and press call... ;(

      Hi Red,

      Preflop: Your 3-bet size is definitely too small, look at the odds you give him to play IP.

      Simply fold this preflop or 3-bet larger (although I'd fold vs a 4x from a 80 BB stack)

      Postflop: As played we don't really beat anything that shoves there. At best we tie with AJ.
