      If you want to fold a tptk why 3betting then? Calling OOP is an option. As played I call and c/c down.

      Alright! I just seem to have a bit of a hard time playing postflop after calling OOP with a hand like this which is why I like 3betting. Then again it seems I cant play it postflop when 3betting either :D

      Say that I called and this flop hit. How would you play postflop (villain pretty much unknown but seems reasonable). Would you call down 3 barrels? Raise(/fold?) flop? Call flop raise turn? I just don't know what would be the standard line on such a flop.

      Ty for answer :)

      It sucks, because you're oop, I would likely just shove on the flop.
      Although call and then evaluating on the turn is also fine
      Some players would raise with bluff a lot of times with middle pp, some would do it with Jx and also call for shove, some with overpair QQ-AA and you sometimes see there trips.
      Because your hand, consider your 3-bet range is very strong on that board and players would like to make moves on paired boards, then shove is likely the best.
