      This betting pattern is a set like 90% of the time at the micros.

      Easy fold.

      (Also make a note that he 3bet your cbet in case he's doing it too much, but most likely he has you beat every time.)

      Turned out he had KK. Very well played (risky though) I say.

      I know.

      On the flop I said to myself alright if he push my 3bet then I fold. However when he actually did I got curious and convinced myself that he might have TT/99.

      Should have trusted my instinct.

      Hi,


      Well played by him this time I guess, tho it's actually pretty awful when you realize what he's doing. Against the fish he's obviously better off 3-betting preflop, and most regs at microstakes now know that he's representing a set by doing that and will fold lower overpairs a good amount of the time not to mention lower pairs, so showing up with an in-between hand like KK basically is worthless against good competition, it's almost a bluff.

      Just fold the flop, it's highly exploitable but nobody cares. And once you 3-bet you don't have a choice you need to call it off on the off-chance he shows you a draw.


      Hope it helps.

      Hi, what about calling his raise otf? I know there are many turncards we don't wanna see, but still, we have the best hand quite often here imo. Vill could easily have fd/sd, A8, K8, 99, TT etc. We cannot be sure that he is good reg, so also things like 98s are possible...

      Thanks for reply :)

      I would usually not give villains that much respect to b/f that flop
      So I´d start out usually indeed b/c, since we have very often best hand and you can always decide on the turn if you want to c/rai or not
