      As you can see TPNK in HU.
      I doubt he would fold any pair on this board and thats the main reason I played the hand I did.
      No sure it was correct tho, since there is possiblity for nuts, SD, FD, or even TP with better kicker.
      In the end he was chasing hes FD luckily for me :)

      Hi,

      With your raise on the Flop, what will you do AND feel if he 3bets you?

      You give him 3:1 when you raise him with your TPNK and don't you agree that any pair is mostly linked with some kind of straightdraw/flushdraw?


      I am looking forward to your reply

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      on 3bet the best move would be to fold for sure and cut the losess, but am commited already with 40% of my stack invested so would probably push AI.
      How would I feel ... even if I fold or push I would of fold like pretty lousy, same way I felt after the hand ended.

      I already stated that in my original post.
      He could of have zillion outs and I couldnt agree more that my play with only TP was not justified here .
      The reason I pushed so far was we were heads up and somehow I STILL tend to think too often that am way ahead with my TP.
      Maybe on some dry board I would of been came to realise that I purley was lucky here...and donkish too.

      As soon as you Raise, you can't Raise/Fold nor Raise/Call. EV-wise of Raise/Jam is not so good opposed to calling IP in my opinion because the relative handstrength you have.

      Because basically your hand is the same like Midpair topkicker since he either has a better hand than you (TPGK++) or he has a big equity hand

      Hence I would just call IP on the Flop and call on a blank Turn as well
