      Hi,

      I'd raise preflop to 4,00$ because of oop and his looseness.
      I'd contibet flop to 4,75$ and give up if getting called or raised.
      As played: It's good to take a stab as delayed contibet, but the card isn't quite the best, because now the board hits his 3-bet calling range relatively hard.
      If villain is thinking player then he knows, that you would contibet flop with overpair/strong hand and air anytime. So he puts you on AJ-AK => c/f all streets.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      i think giving up on the flop is fine, although you can also try c-bet.
      Just when you get called you likely have only 6 outs to improve and you may get play back at some percentage, since board is middle and suited, it missed AJ-AK and you often don´t have there anything
      After you check flop I don´t like b/f turn, since he doesn´t really fold any better hand than yours and again you hand looks a lot like overcards, so he can raise there with worse hands

      Thanks all!

      @ bernie0303

      I've bet because after his flop ch I thought that I have good/better hand & and dont want to play c/f (& dont have odds 4 c/c)

      @ AninIII
      I think U right, but I earlier thougt that my 3bet amout is too high (3 $ would be standard) beacuse when I bet 3,5 or 4$ I give him message that I want to win it now & dont want to play it postflop OOP ( so he can see me as AK-AJ) I'm not right?

      @ Kaitz20

      so I should play c/f T, ch/c isnt any option, right?

      I think c/c turn is reasonable, but since you can´t call river bet, then c/f is also one option.
      Don´t really expect worse hands to bet very often or if they do, then it is hard you to call them down

      It's the other way round.
      If you just bet 3$ you are giving villain better odds to call with marginal hands in position. I 3-bet oop to 3,5 times the raising size of initial raiser. As there are 2 limpers I bet 3,5x + 2 limpers as I want villain to make a bigger mistake preflop in the longrun.
