      RIVER ($9.85) 3:diamond: J:spade: 7:diamond: T:club: 7:spade:

      Hero shows J:diamond: T:diamond:
      (Pre 18%, Flop 45.3%, Turn 81.8%)

      BTN shows Q:heart: Q:diamond:
      (Pre 82%, Flop 54.7%, Turn 18.2%)

      BTN wins $9.36

      So I know I made a few mistakes here, just wondering what your thoughts are as to best line. After reviewing hand I think I should definatley have C-bet too gain some info, and then called behind shoved turn.

      Another note this guy was 3-betting 12% so I would never have put him on QQ. Is this a correct assumption to make?

      PF: JTs isn't a must call here. We are dominated by so many hands OOP like AT,AJ,KJ,TT,JJ,QQ,KK,AA but we get fairly good odds from his min-r so I guess it's ok.

      Flop: It is prob close. I made a range of
      equity win
      Hand 0: 46.632% 46.15%{ JdTd }
      Hand 1: 53.368% 52.88%{ JJ+, AJs, KJs, AJo, KJo }

      So we have to call $3 to win $8. So I guess its correct?

      P.S. Don't post results. It makes biased answers.

      I'm never ever folding preflop. I'll be looking to flop more than just one pair to consider playing a big pot tho.

      As played postflop, mostly we have a very strong draw in that situation, as I don't think he's overbetting air too often, tho it's possible he does it sometimes, or he has AdKd or something along those lines.

      I don't really like check/raising small after he makes such a huge c-bet, usually I don't think he's folding much after taking that line so I'd rather just jam it in his face so that it looks as scary as possible. Plus if he calls and we don't improve on the turn it's really gross, we'll have to shove it in or check/guess with half our flop equity when we could very well be behind. It's high variance but we're not in bad shape against anything.

      If you think he'll give up with bluffs on the turn or that he's never bluffing on the flop, you can check/call but then you have to check/fold unimproved if he makes a big turn bet.

      Hope it helps.
