Hi everybody,

vs 22/14/4,6 AF

He was 4 tabling, so probably a regular although flop cbet make me want to belive other wize.

PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

Hero (Button) ($55.88)
SB ($7.98)
BB ($29.38)
UTG ($77.20)
MP ($95.81)
CO ($16.81)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 3, 3
UTG raises to $0.70, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.70, 2 folds

Flop: ($1.75) 9, 3, 10 (2 players)
UTG bets $0.60, Hero raises to $2, UTG calls $1.40

Turn: ($5.75) 6 (2 players)
UTG checks, Hero bets $4.40, UTG raises to $15.30, Hero ...

So whats the best play? fold, call and decide turn, or shove?

His play reminds me of the 4-tabling the reg at 10nl I've been posting about in my Time Vault thread, who triple barrels with suited gappers on 100bbs ... except you guys are actually deepstacked

Gosh I don't really play deep, would that be standard to call a flop re-raise with the bad end of an open-ender 78s, without the flush draw to go with it? And with that AF of almost 5 ... you would think he'd want to try and get the money in with a flopped set. Unless he felt the board was so dry that was the highest he could go??

I guess there's overs he could be *over*playing (JJ-AA), but that would mean he bet smaller utg with like AA. And gosh your line just looks so strong ...

But then maybe there's also a chance he felt you might be semi-bluffing the flop with a draw/overs since he bet so small with a hand like 66?

Hmmm ... are his wtsd/w$sd normal? This is kind of nitty, but unless there's people who would re-raise draws on the turn ... think I'd just fold. I wouldn't be worried about the 78 so much as the 99 or TT, although there's so few combos of both. Maybe if you had 99 instead of 33 I'd like the call more, since then you'd only have to worry about the TT.

I don't know ... probably the fold is wrong - could be that I'm in a downswing. Maybe it's fps with AA??

I think we have a pretty straightforward choice between calling and folding. We can never three-bet the turn at this stack depth with our hand -- it simply isn't strong enough.

Being dead to 99 and TT matters a lot here. I don't think there are so many draws that our opponent plays this way. I wouldn't mind a fold, though I could understand calling to fold to further action on the river, regardless of which card it was (save the 3).
