I'm past caring now just proving my point about micros.

Villain with 66 in bb over calls my TT 3-bet from sb. Original raiser comes to the party.

I check a 733 flop knowing I'm good "label Muppet" (polite version for PSO).

Nearly 100% of the time the over caller will now lead and the original raiser folds. How do I know? Sometimes certain betting patterns stick in my head.

OK now it goes >>badly wrong for me<<

Basically villain calls my turn bet effectively all-in on a gut-shot and gets there.

If I hadn't taken down a $7 STT earlier I would be on tilt.
Just sharing a hand with you.

Hey Forrest,

I like 3betting pre against a midstack's CO open.

Postflop I would definitely start betting out for value and protection in a multiway pot. When this gets checked around any turn can hurt your hand really and you will have to face some tough decisions OOP against two opponents (four cards).

Once you check it is tough to decide how to proceed against somebody who coldcalled your 3bet pre and now pots flop against two opponents. If you have a read/info that tells you this guy may be bluffing or betting worse I think x/jamming or x/c flop might be fine, but in that case I would continue to do so on the turn since I'd fear folding out all his bluffs as well as some worse hands by betting out myself here. Your line looks pretty strong here.
