      I hate the way I played this. I mistook this guys Position preflop and 3bet thinking he was in late (don't Ask) Then i played really weak postflop given his fold to cbet stats and fold to 3bet%, Should i have played Way Ahead/Way Behind Post?;

      (at the time my logic was, "shit, I didn't realise he was in MP1, he's probably calling JJ, maybe QQ and AK, He'll 4bet KK and AA and fold the rest preflop. Then he shouldn't raise my cbet unless he actually has AK, Otherwise he'll just Call or Fold, knowing how tight my preflop range shoudl be)

      Flop: Ye, kinda weak against such a maniac. I would go for tricky play and just Call.
      Turn: Check/Raise because he will very often bet here again.

      Best regards,

      the min raise on the flop means nothing. i feel that because of your big preflop 3bet, villian puts you on QQ or KK when flop of AAJ comes. if he has JJ or AJ usually he will just flat call flop to slowplay flopped house and let you hang yourself on the turn.

      i would call the min raise and check/raise all in blank turn. if he has AJ, AK or JJ you have outs. otherwise, you are simply way ahead. ship it for stack.

      Don´t really see how you can fold trips there.
      Because you´re oop, you can 3-bet to 25$ or shove directly.
