      I would bet only potsize on the flop, call a reraise. If villain just calls I would go all in on any turn card.

      By overbetting this flop you are sometimes just isolating yourself against better hands and not getting any value from single pairs and such.

      Hey FWKanobi,

      pushing directly on the flop with 3x potsize left in your stack is overbetting so, I would just bet potsize and go broke to a reraise or push any turn card if called.

      Also, completing suited broadways after 3 limpers is fine as long as you know you have to play for 2-pair or better.
