Hi Carlos,

I guess you're asking if the best play is to 3b this and stack off to a 4b from the villain? Not sure what else you mean by should I stack this off on the flop (I also don't get your hidden texts, they never show anything for me except "Hero didn't show" and "SB didn't show"... did you fold?)

I don't think getting stacks in on the flop in a 3b/4b/5b war is optimal, although against a recreational player I would do it. But he might be making a move here with just a jack sometimes and that won't stack off imo, so our 3b folds out any low equity hands in his range and only gets stack action from higher equity hands.

I would probably call here, which leaves some doubt about our holding and will encourage more action from hands on a draw or Jx that thinks it might be good. And we have position so we can choose to bet the turn if checked to, or call/raise turn at our discretion.

Our hand is too strong to fold to a check-raise from a seemingly laggy recreational player here imo.

I just cut the converted hand where i need help, don't really know why it shows any hidden results, will check the format code next time...

You got it right, i was asking if we should 3bet and call an all in.. i did that and im realizing it was a mistake..

If you just call, what do you do on two blanks, if he keeps firing ?

Thanks Dave.

If blanks turn and river fire a bet out you have the best hand on the flop make them pay to draw to any flush or st.
