      Assuming roughly 100bb stack sizes I probably just call.

      I don't think there's any reason to 3bet, you've got position on both the players and the odds for just a call. We don't really need initiative postflop realistically if we hit the board in any way that we want to continue with it will be a draw. If I flopped a SD or FD i'd consider 3betting on the flop if the original limper folded to raiser's C-Bet.

      I guess calling is a good play, but hardly anyone is 4-betting unless they shove, and by 3-betting I should get at least one of them out of the pot. Plus, it means I can represent anything when the flop comes down.

      I don't know, perhaps I'll have to rethink... It's my two hands I 3 bet away from the normal 3-betting range (8,9 and 9,T suited).


      9,Ts = 134.24BB/100 across 346 times dealt.

      8,9s = -7.24BB/100 across 321 times dealt.

      Perhaps I should try the calling thing, seems a bit boring though. :P

      UtG + 1 (Unknown) Raise to 3BB

      MP2 calls (unknown)

      Hero (Bu) 9 8...?


      Views please :)
      Tournament or Cash ?
      Any reads ? effective stack size ?

      basically on Tournament I only call hopint the suited connector gods will be kind to me , in cash...i might call / might 3 bet depends on table dynamic. :)
      (Rush cash i.e. ill 3bet)

      I like calling there as well. 9Ts is a nice hand that plays good post flop in positon. With 3-betting you turn it into a bluff. And when you do get called you either miss or hit some kind of a draw and i dont like playing draws in big 3-bet pots.

      Surely you don't want to get heads up with a suited connector. You can only justify calling because of the implied odds, and the more players in the pot, the more likely someone is to pay you off. You 3bet with AA for precisely the opposite reason.
