Stats:

Player1 ( $18.58 USD ) - VPIP: 25, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 5.5, Hands: 100

Player2 ( $32.83 USD ) - VPIP: 27, PFR: 22, 3B: 6, AF: 1.0, Hands: 45

Player3 ( $56.07 USD ) - VPIP: 18, PFR: 9, 3B: 5, AF: 1.1, Hands: 171



My question is what kind of sizing I should be making this hand.

I've been doing some studying atm watching quite a few mid-high stakes vids and a lot of them tend to size a lot smaller than the micros (1/3 pot bets etc) because it's better for their entire range and easier to balance.

The way I see it we have 2 options for this hand;

1) We bet 1/3 pot on 3 streets and GII on the river like I was planning to do. If he calls my turn bet we have a pot of $47.69 and $18.61 behind allowing for an easy shove.

2) We go for 2 streets betting bigger OTF and shoving the turn.

This way, the the flop bet would be ~$10 and the turn shove would be ~$24 into a pot of ~$37.

What route would you guys go?

I would go three-small streets everytime here. I think your turn size is too big even. I would just go 8$. We're still going to have a massive pot and stack ratio on the river where no one is going to be able to fold.

I wouldn't mind betting the flop bigger either, like 6.50$. I don't think that there is much difference in the range that continues versus this size and the one you chose. Honestly maybe 7.50 is better on the flop. I can't think of a hand villain plays this way that sees this flop and fodls to 7.50. Can you?

V3's range is probably QQ-TT and maybe AK?

QQ and AK are going to come along whatever we do, so we have to try extract value from JJ/TT, do you think he'll call a $7.50 bet with those holdings?

Maybe 7.50 is pushing it!

6.50! Final answer
