      I couldnt see many hands that he would raise on that board - 66,33 are the only options, surely the rest like pp etc would be bluffs?

      I wouldn't try a 3bet bluff on the flop against many people on NL25. If you don't have a read you should fold to his raise. He won't do it with a mid pocket cause he has showdown value and would usually just call or fold.

      This mostly. As you go up you'll see people capable of doing that with a pure bluff or a good top pair, some will also regularly do that with bottom or middle pair because it's "easier" to make that information/semibluff raise than to start a call down. For nl25 tho, mostly this means FD+2overs, 33/66/JJ, so just fold and keep an eye on his flop play to see if he's doing that a lot, in which case you can start thinking about what to do to combat that (which is going to be a pain out of position mind you :) ).


      Hope it helps.
