      Here a hand from yesterday's session.

      Guy is a pretty standard TAG player. If he is thinking he will know I won't contibet AK/AQ on this board and most likely have an overpair. Pockets like 22,77,66 fit well into his range, although he could also be holding a variety of SC and thus draws (OESD, FD, both) or two pairs.

      What is your line in these kind of spots?

      b/c flop and evaluate on the turn
      a lot of times considering shoving on blank turn or calling turn folding river

      The turn card is pretty much a blank if you call the flop raise then you should call on that turn, personally i fold the flop the guy was trying the check/raise the field you and two other players and you have shown a whole load of strength opening up in ep and c-betting into 3 people.

      On a multiway flop still b/c to a checkraise?

      yeah it is kind of blank card and he decides to shove.
      I think you can find fold there, he isn´t shoving enough times with draws and I´d expect him to c/c or c/f a lot of times higher overpairs like TT or maybe JJ

      I´d personally would fold to strong c/r, but this is 2,5x 3-bet size, which kind of wanna make me call, since at some times player is just c/r with overpair since he doesn´t want to call turn/river bets.
