      Hi,


      I usually don't call 3-bets out of position with AK, especially if there is a chance BB is doing it light there. MP2 limped, we're isolating a limper which we should/could do with a wide range, it's a common spot to throw in a 3bet with whatever hand BB has if he has that mentality. Not too sure how often this happens at nl5 tho, i'm guessing not too much. I'd likely still 4-bet by default but calling isn't that bad for that price.

      Postflop is fine, often you're chopping but he could have JJ or play AQ/TT/KK+ trickily, of course we're getting it in with the nuts.


      Hope it helps.

      the problem is : i would lay it down for any bet on the flop.

      I AM 100% sure that he has a set on the flop
      my question is : i should call on the turn and lay it down if river doubles a card ? or ship it and hope that he don`t hit FH?
      i repeat, i`m 100% sure that he has a set

      Well if you are that convinced he has a set, you should do a happy dance and shove the turn, since you are roughly 80% favourite ;)

      Hi,


      Well you can never be 100% sure of anything, and given the stacks left behind when he raises the turn there is just no way he's folding anything, so it's better to just throw the rest in out of position, especially if there is any chance he somehow sucks at valuebetting or gets scared by a A/K coming in and making a 4-straight board. Frankly I don't want to have to check/fold the river getting like 4:1 when he could have been pot controlling JT on the flop or something.

      Assuming deeper stacks and a good opponent with an insanely tight 3-betting range BBvsSB isoraise (not so likely these days..), if you're 100% sure he has a set AND you're 100% sure he will put the rest of the money in on any river card, then it's fine to play it slower to make 'perfect' decisions.


      Hope it helps.
