      villain is 28/22 over 163 hands, no other info but seen him around a bit.

      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $31.08 (155.4 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $42.30 (211.5 bb)
      MP: $8.80 (44 bb)
      CO: $39.29 (196.5 bb)
      BTN: $22.64 (113.2 bb)
      SB: $31.65 (158.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with T T
      Hero raises to $0.60, 3 folds, SB calls $0.50, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.40) J T 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.94, SB raises to $4.22, Hero???

      on the flop what should my play be? he makes it big so im not sure what his range is. could be some draws but i think its more likely something like JT or a set.

      if i just call, i let him realise his equity with KQ or 98s if he has it which i dont think is too inconceivable given that we are deep. i don't want to see a 9, a Q or a K really so i think calling is a bad idea.

      if i 3bet which is my only option imo, i don't know how big to make it. should i bomb it and just try to get the money in? should i click it back to make him think he has FE with a hand like KQ? maybe he makes more mistakes against a minraise but i think it could be a bit fishy to do.

      I don't think villain will make this huge sizing with air bluffs so we want to 3bet flop to charge draws more and to get it in vs his strong hands. I don't like the idea of minraise too much because draws will have too good odds, so I'd make it bigger.

      Hi Lewis,

      JT is only one combo, and you have 66/77. There are also KQ/89 and other gutshots so I would 3-bet there to about $9.5 or so (which would make the pot about $20 on the turn with about $20 behind).
