      Any stats? Mostly looking for VPIP/PFR and aggresion factor.

      Against an aggresive villain I'm playing 3bet broke here on the flop cause in that case he might be raising with KQ, KT, mabye even QJ etc.
      Against a passive villain I'd prefer to bet/fold here as he'll most likely made a straight with QT or flopped two pair (KJ, K9), maybe a set of nines althou this board isn't usually a board where a lot of sets can hit so I wouldn't worry too much about that.

      Hello,

      I don't mind Calling on flop and reevaluating further streets but if I am Calling it on flop then I am likely Calling it also on turn when a the board is unimproved. Otherwise I would likely just fold on flop with some kind of reads or stats.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      against middlestack 3-bet flop to 11$ and calling shove seems better than taking b/c line and then c/f on blank turn card
