      How good/bad is it to 3-bet here. I wouldn't normally do it I think but I did it because if I call then I just am setmining and have to fold many flops if I don't hit my set and often play in multiway pots. Whereas if I 3-bet I will have initative and I think often c-bet will work because I think my 3-bet looks v.strong here. Plus my hand isn't that bad anyway.

      I call here always. Just because a big multway pot with 3 potential fish is the perfect situation to setmine. + you can set over set people a lot with TT.

      I 3bet here often. Tens for me is too strong to play only for set value and it is hard to play out of position in multiway pot. Besides, his small isolation raise looks weak for me.

      Hi,


      I'm also just calling. Without reads we don't really know whether CO's smallish isoraise is strong or not, and if it is, it would really suck to get 4-bet off TT when we could have set-mined multiway.

      If you think it's such a great spot to 3bet and take it down with a c-bet just go ahead with some semi trashy hand like A5s that you don't mind folding to a 4-bet and that has more equity than TT on a lot of flops.


      Hope it helps.
