If villain calls, and checks river we probably check back? If villain calls the 3b and ships river, do we fold? lol?
Yes that was how I see it but I would think we have to be CERTAIN that he won't shove without a set because otherwise we are simply torching $$. Not sure if we hav that good a read on this villain.
Agree that if we do min 3b and villain calls and checks river, I think we check back as it would seem villain's calling range is very narrow (22 only maybe?...hard to think of anything else). And your last point is why I am not sure we can make this play as the odds would be sooo tasty to call a river ship at that point since we arent deep enough.
I still like the thought process a lot though and think in a deeper spot versus a villain we have a great read on, it is a great 3b/fold play that will save $$.
