      It's played ok , it's a heavy drawing board so it's good to go all in , villain could have a lot of hands AKs , AJs , QT etc. , you'll be ahead in many situations here .

      Preflop is ok.

      It is difficult to say against unknown. If villain had TAGish stats I think you can consider calling his 3bet an reevaluate. I doubt someone who will call your 4bet here doesn't have bottom set beat considering you are 150bb deep.

      Howdy,

      I think it's fine playing for stack here even tho we are deep, because you called his raise and his CO should be wide enough to have a lot of pair+FD/pair+SD/two pair combos there aswell as AA/KK and so on. Given that I think you should be fine overall, but if he's really passive/nit you may think of alternatives like calling, but given that board I think that means giving him card to improve and I think he will have to improve more often than we do.

      Good luck!

      Hi,


      You can do it both ways preflop, I'd advice sticking to just calling with medium pairs until you get better at playing ranges, as you'll often end up flopping overcards to your 99 without knowing what to do with these situations out of position.

      Postflop I'd lead out to begin with, it's a dead-ugly board for our bottom set and villain checking behind would be disastrous for our equity. As played not much you can do unless you know enough about him to put him on really strong made hands instead of some composite range including monsters and two pairs with random draw/pair+draw hands and stuff like that. Even if that's the case, your boat outs are often tainted because of him having stuff like T9/QT/Q9, if you hit anything but a 9 you'll have an underboat. And you're out of position which makes for poor playability overall. In short when in doubt just get it in and call it a cooler if you lose.


      Hope it helps.
