      All opponents are unknown, we have played like 10 hands only. I am holding TT on SB. MP raises 2,5x, I think I could 3-bet him but BTN make min 3-bet which looks really awkward. At this point I had a doubt what to do, shove over him or just fold? I think calling is worse than both those as I will be OOP and MP have chance to shove after me which I couldn't call then. So what is your thoughts about this one?

      Also lets say BTN folded. Whats the best play then? 3-bet? setmine? And if I 3-bet and he 4-bet shoves I guess it is a call then? I am just not really strong and convinced when playing 99-JJ in early game, don't know how to play them as good as possible.

      I supposed we had crossed @tables, stt ones, if your PokerStars nick is identical as here.
      Despite TT isn't it a strong hand I love to go broke with them. I understand it as a mental problem, because, "I deserve to win after wait a long time for a made hand." kkk
      Against one raiser playing in cold calling for set mining is the best option, but, I really don't like to play fit or fold post flop.
      In front of BU mini-raise, I would fold because in multiway pots a made hand won't play well and if you were oop you don't have pot control.
      It's a difficult spot and lets a master come to comment about it. Anyway, there are in Brazilian community a coach who teaches to play TT/JJ in SnG and I'll watch it and share here.

      I dont think TT is strong enough to 3bet. Call to hit a set on the flop? Well i think this is the best play, call preflop and just give up on the flop if u dont hit, you dont need to invest more.

      If you are playing 6max turbo stt at 1.50$ it is a big chance we have crossed tables as I am playing, studying and specialising only these ones lately. And yes my nickname is identical on PS, whats your nickname? It could be interesting if I have some notes with mistakes about you and you have about me.

      And yeah it would be nice if you would share it later. :f_thumbsup:

      Agapie, I don't really like calling as I would be OOP here. I think I could sometimes call IP vs TAG players for setmining if the odds would be good. If I call OOP it is really hard to make a good profit even if I hit that set vs only 1 player.

      Fold on the 3bet of the BTN seems nitty, but I don’t think it’s a bad play with the original raiser that could 4bet as well and is folding fine in my opinion and there will be enough changes to build up your stack.

      If the BTN has folded it depends a little bit how aggressive the MP player is if I would 3bet or not, but calling for set value isn’t bad for sure.

      Cheers,
