      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K:heart: , K:club:
      Hero raises to $0,40, 4 folds, CO raises to $1,20, 3 folds, Hero calls $0,80.

      Flop: ($2,55) 9:spade: , 8:heart: , T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1,70, Hero raises to $4,00, CO raises to $8,95 (All-In), Hero ???

      How often does an average villain have cards that I beat (Ak, QQ, JJ) in this situation on this limit? Should I 3-bet pre-flop? Should I bet and try to get it all-in on that flop? My idea for a check/raise was that if he goes all-in after my raise, he has AA. He would just call QQ and JJ, and probably fold AK.

      Thanks for comments.

      4bet preflop and call a shove would be the standard.

      As played you're flipping with a tight range in that spot and he's going to shove any overpair over your raise, just not AA, so you absolutely need to call it off once you check/raise.

      Hope it helps.
