player 3 is a pso reg

hands = 1.8k
vpip = 18
pfr = 14
3 bet = 4.3
flop bet fold = 47

I dont often call 3 bets with 9Ts
So i made up my mind to call and play my hand as a set what ever the flop except maybe AAK nice to flop flush draw as back up
I know this player can fold top top witch is what i think player 3 had as they tanked for a long time on the flop and tanked folded on the turn

good plan or bad

Ps i have change the hand id so you can not find out how the player is

Minraising is bad blind vs blind because you give the bb great odds to call IP.

Defending a 3b with T9s isn't horrible if we are comfortable postflop and/or willing to make moves on the right boards.

When we raise his flop cbet, our hand looks a lot like what it is. We'd call with any showdown value, so raising doesn't really achieve much except folding his air. I'd opt to c/c the flop because of this.

As played out, our sizing was awkward for a turn shove, but given the stacks shoving seems like the right play assuming our flush draw is live and opponent is capable folding hands like 77-TT.

Hi XXXX,

I agree with birdayy on not raising the minimum vs BB. If we think BB will 3bet against the SB often then perhaps we can remove the bottom of our steal range to reduce our steals against them and play them with a tighter range.

I personally would have folded preflop to the 3bet and I think calling to rep a set is kind of bad because that is a very small portion of our range. When you raise the flop, do you plan to call off with T high FD? I think we can x/c flop and look to bluff river on cards that do not improve his range when we miss and they check back turn.
With the T coming OTT I think this helps us to x/c twice with equity and look to check down river with SD value if we miss.
