      hi guys
      i have started this thread so we can have a discussion about playing overpairs on the flop against different oponents . When giving your answers take into consideration history , flop texture and image at the table .
      we are tag with stats 18/15/2(vpip,pfr,af).
      All the tables are shorthanded.

      Hand 1 :
      Villain is known as a standard tag and seats at two tables with us . His stats are 18/16/2.2/600 (vpip,pfr,af,nh).He saw us raising alot of hands , cbeting and taking the pot without showdown.

      Hand 1:
      Shove all in since he might think we have nothing based on our previous play and because board is very drawy. Plus we have backdoor nut flush.

      Hand 2:
      Call this aggro player, if you shove he will fold all worse hands. (I prob c/r turn based on his previous play)

      Hand 3:
      What is my table image?
      Tough hand. He isnt aggro but he raises flop as if protecting his hand. He could have JJ or QQ but unlikely. He probably has a set or a nut FD+oc in which case I fold because I cant continue here oop against a TAG and will prob be commited if I call.

      Hand 1 :

      the flop is very drawheavy, a lot of turns are bad for us, so i reraise AI.

      Vs a passive player, i call and chk/fold the turn if he bets big.

      Hand 2 :

      Villain is very aggressive and the board don't have a lot of draw, so i call the raise on the flop and i chk/raise AI the turn.

      Hand 3 :

      Villain has only an AF of 1, he is passive postflop.
      I call his bet on the flop because a fold here his too weak.
      On the turn i play chk/fold if he bets big.

      PS1 : i learnt from hasenbraten'video on overpairs.

      PS2 : it's a good idea this discussion, can you make this for others hands ?

      1. Flop is drawy and re-raise is big. He won´t do that move with total bluff, since we can always suck out with runner-runner flush and we might be ahead then I´d shove here.
      2. If villain woudl re-raised to 2$, then I´d like to go small 3-bet to 4$.
      Here pot is big if he call and he has potsize left. Not really sure that he´d shove with middle pp here or oesd or Jx. he rather take free card and if he improves then shove/call river. That ś why I like min-3bet and give him chance shoving or if he wants to call with Jx and see what we do on the turn.
      3. B/f. WE´re not ahead against nit almost never with overpair.

      1. Raise allin.
      2. Call and fold to an ace on the turn or just raise small here, almost same EV.
      3. Fold.

      1. Shove, he could be drawing and he'd mostly CBH his whole range on the turn, unless he hit his draw.

      2. Call and c/r turn. if turn was an ace I'd mostly just c/c turn because he'd fold most hands (Jx, TT). Then river c/c I guess...

      3. Fold, i dont see a nit raising with a pair or an overpair, a draw only if it is overcards + FD, and that overcard could be an ace. most of the times he'll have a set though
