Hi adohole,

This is an odd hand.

Player 8 probably doesn't have a T. Since he would probably get it in on the flop.

When Player 3 flats a 3bet there shouldn't be that many Tx in their range either.

However Player 3 can't really be bluffing here putting half their remaining stack in and Player 8 fully commited to the pot.

Other hands he could be betting with are pocket pairs KK & AA beating us and we beat JJ & 99.

So comes down to how loose the opponent is. There are some opponents who will always see the flop with two broadway cards. These are you 30% VPIPers.

Assuming Player 3 has been fairly loose (given what he shows up with here) I think a fold here is ok. Check fold ok vs really passive opponents. Small bet fold might be better against aggressive ones.

Nice read
