      PF I call for setmining. After the flop, I thought that I've the best hand.

      $10,25
      MP3:

      Hero checks, BU bets $1,05, Hero raises to $3,00, BU raises to $10,05, Hero calls $6,80 (All-In), BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Yeah nice pref and flop c/r just don`t call a shove because I don`t see a villain who looks prettey reasonable(even though a small samplesize) shoving you here with anything less than JJ+. Maybe TT but that is farfetched and still not profitable from your side.

      I guess check/call flop. The pot bet kind of scares me, I would expect this to be strong quite often. With some bet sizing info, you could prob find a fold.

      Check/raise is bad. Having the best hand isn't a reason to raise, you must be ahead of the range that villian calls with. Here, it's going to be hard for BU to put in much money with worse hands if you raise. And even if he does, it's still really thin value considering entire range.

      You probably need a decent read to straight check/fold the flop, nothing tells us he wouldn't play a lower overpair exactly like that for "protection" against overcards or something, maybe even straight value figuring you won't fold anything on such a board.

      I agree on the rest, unless you know that this guy shows up there with any pair and won't fold any of them to the check/raise, you're usually better off just calling and reevaluating the turn.


      Hope it helps.
