      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. But I would bet bigger at flop, $3.50+.

      Best regards,

      Hello,
      I dont like the idea of 3betting middle pocket pairs here. You are basically not doing it for value, and its playability OOP is weak as you often hit a weakish overpair or as in your case with only 1 over.
      As played, if called on flop, Im giving up.

      But calling a pocket here against a stealy TAG is pretty bad too, since you get no value from the set since his open raising range from BU is weak and always have to fold if he cbets turn (assuming you call a bet on the flop).. :/

      Hello,
      Well once you flat it your postflop actions depend on his stats and the board. Most of the tags dont second barrel with worse hands, sometimes you should float him OOP,,sometimes fold flop and sometimes raise flop.Against some TAGs you can take the calldown line on a suitable board , so I wouldnt call it a straightforward postflop action.Anyway, a mid pair has showdown value, but not against his 3bet calling range.

      No, but on the other hand I get set value in return from his 3bet calling range. I don't get that by just calling.

      I´d likely 3-bet myself pf to balance my 3-bet range and take pot down often pre-flop.
      I think you can mix it up, bu calling and flatting pf.
