      Hi Tipper.

      I would 3bet preflop with TT from the button against CO. We have very few hands on him, I know, but even so, our pair is good enough by far to isolate here and try to play HU.

      Given the situation postflop, I would bet full potsize against three to protect against big single diamond hands, but $3.50 is so close it can't be wrong.

      Turn, the draws are still there, and I like the bet here as well, though if raised you would probably have to fold.

      River I think check behind is fine. Certainly no better hand will fold to a bet, and we definitely don't want a check/raise.

      yes i thought about 3betting pf but decided against it because i had so few hands on him. just now i noticed how very loose the others were which is all the more reason to try to isolate CO? (and get BB with 86o to fold :evil: )

      Edita now wonders if she doesn't actually generally prefer having fish with 86o in the hand?

      I check behind on the turn as well.

      It's true that we have to protect against flush draws, but our hand is pretty weak on this board. I'm gonna try to get to the SD cheaply. There are so many hands that beat us already.

      And 3bet pre-flop =)
