Villain is 34/18/6. I'm playing 22/16/7. We played an earlier hand where he pot-called off 100+bbs on the turn with TPTK + 2nd nut flush draw vs my set, so he'll know that I'm capable of checking strong hands to him. I don't know that he's especially floaty.
Should we be betting this turn ourselves? If so, sizing? Sorry if this is a basic hand, I'm not used to playing deep.
this seems like a tough spot cuz the flop is prob not going to hit your pf raising range a lot so he could def be calling with a KKxx type hand, and if you feel like your behind here there are very few rivers that would put you in shape to call a vbet. wp
If we don't have BD diamonds, does anyone ever consider just checking the flop? I realize this isn't going to hit him much so we have a decent amount of FE with a bet, and we have the potential to turn either top set, but besides diamonds A/Q it seems every other turn card is one that we will have to c/f being so deep....even like a deuce he can pretty much always have and we can almost never have....I suppose we can b/f board pairs but if he's good it becomes really easy to bluff us on those cards... thoughts?
Just a quick comment from a noob: your 3bet range OOP (which will be lower than <3.5% I presume) totally missed this flop (except for the only combi of T987). Being deep (and maybe even standard) this seems like a check behind, with the main reason you being OOP and having a difficult time on turn and river for bloated pots just as what happened now. I also think opponents are less likely to bluff you because it's easier to call down 2 streets rather than facing 2 barrels after you essentially given up on turn imo..
