You mean they would call a lot of hands by mistake?Hand like T8?Yeah,this is nl25,i 've seen much of hands call inappropriately overevaluating their hands with like middle pair+gushot/flush draw. I can shove OTT giving them apparently not favorable odds to call.Let alone set/two pair.They cannot get away with it.SO I MAYBE PLAYED NOT AGGRESSIVELY ENOUGH ON THIS SPOT.
BTW,i tend to slow play super strong hands(not nuts),maybe the frequncy is too high that i don't have any draws hands to balance here.This is may also be a leak.When i shove,i need enough super strong hands to balance the not made hand like flush+gutshot draw shove.
When you put your opponent as a hand not easily fold,i think overbet is a good desicion,even a shove.A lot of player on this level would call mistakenly.This secure you better when you bet big,even facing a probability that you could chase away your opponent.

preflop 5 players limps.Hero holds 68o.
FLOP:Ts7s9d,sb allin x(short stacks),get called by following two players.Hero on CO raise 3X,button call,the rest folds.Two players.pot size 80+40(side pot).
TURN:2h brick,hero bet 40,called by button.pot size 80+120.
RIVER:Jh,hero shove for 60,half the side pot.get called by button,with KsQs.
I think OTF i raise with a reasonable size,chasing away 2 players seems comfortable for me.Since the turn is a blank,i bet the side pot size.AM I PLAYING CORRECTLY HERE?The only problem that i think i have is the shove on the river.If button has J8,which is a higher straight that has me beaten,we split the pot.If he has something like Q8,i think only one combo Qs8s could call me OTT.The only exception is that,HE KNOW THAT I HAVE A SMALLER STRAIGHT,AND IF HE CATCHES J OTR,HE CAN OUTPLAY ME WITH A BIGGER STRAIGHT.THIS IS SMALL CHANCE IN MY PERSPECTIVE. I never thought he could have a hand like KQ.And OTT,I DIDN'T GIVE HIM THE RIGHT PRICE TO CALL.Am i just unlucky or could i should've avoided the river shove OTR?I just never thought he could have KQ,even a suited one.

Overall,you played fine.OTT you faced kinda minirase,so you basically cannot fold with TPTK.You literally can bet al lot of hands here despite that you do get outplayed by some hands..It's a normal situation you encountered.Don't worry too much.Don't get tilt when this happen is of vital importance.
Maybe one thing that's notable is that when you didn't own a backdoor flush in this situation,you can show a little less aggression,like you can choose to check back.If you have a flush,like Ks,you can keep bet aggressively since you still have equity against a made flush.You can diminish the frequency of betting or the size of double barrel when you don't have backdoor flush in this kinda situation.Bet small IP is a good strategy against normal player,because they don't C-R frequently enough.It's much easier to fold TPTK against a C-R shove if you bet smaller.
That's my suggestion. Good luck buddy.

"Ironically probably only when money stopped being your driver in the first place."
well,how will you perceive the contradiction that in order to be monetary successful ultimately,you have to ignore it in the first place ?If you ignore it,will it be a failure rather than a success?How will you perceive it when it does happen in the opposite way of your expectation?
BTW,i am living in a developing country.So maybe it's easier for me to be a pro than the people in developed ones?What's the reason behind it?

1.IP smaller,OOP larger.
2.big 3bet size normally means polarized hand,and small 3bet size indicates a condensed or linear range,and for the purpose of playing straightforward and aggresively OTF,recommend a larger 3bet size which is polarized.

We know that, a good 3 bet size(hypothetize we are IP,like on the button) requires us to not bet small so that we give our opponent good pot odds to outplay us and not too big so it chase away all our opponent.But if many players sitll not in action,like the MWP,it's a little bit complex for us to design the right size according to the principle as we mentioned before.So,if you MUST have to decide whether to 3bet small or large,which line would you choose?

If i were the player,i would probably call the miniraise.The villian offers us a good pot odds for us to catch the heart on the river and stacks him.The reraise shove OTT is too aggressive.What if the opponent hold a made flush hand?Calling OTF and raise your second barrel normally means he has a strong hand.Based on the board texture,he probably has made flush,set,two pair,ect.He does not have a capped range,so your shove may run into a super strong hand which lessen dramasticly your equity in this sprot..He won't fold 79,in his perspective,he may think that you hold an overpair,at best with a heart.He still have a decent equity against that range.
Flop small sizing doesn't mean anything.It's the turn raise that's crucial.I think that just call and hope to get a heart OTR is a good play.Once getting the heart,you can bet 1/2-2/3 pot size and hope to get value from a weaker flush or two pair or set..

"This is knowing that you are letting them all draw to their overs, so you will probably lose the hand on most runouts and can't call any more bets. That is the mental level you need to be on to approach these spots. "
This is a kind suggestion.
Thanks for offering me another pespective of dealing with this kinda pot.

3bet size is standard.
What do you mean by given the "price"?Why u would consider the raise as a bluff not a good idea?The 2 into 100 bet seems to me apparently that a raise chasing the later position players away is reasonable.But i never thought the EP holds 7.
Maybe a smaller raise,like 35 against the 2 into 100 bet instead of raising 65 is a better choice?So i wouldn't get pot-committed in that case and probably could get away with it.

Hero UTG with TT. raise 3bb,call,call.button 3bet,hero call,call.4way pot.
flop Js7d4h,check down.
Turn,7h,hero check,EP bet 2 into 100 pot.Get called by following 2 villian.Hero raise to 60,EP shove for 110,fold,fold,Hero call.
Villian with 27s,Lose the pot.
stats about ep:40/5. I am just wondering,this kind of bet,2 into 100,how will u guys deal with it?He is ovbiously bet wanted to get raised.But how can you detect it?In my perspective,i don't know what EP holds,but i know the two opponent behind him apparently holds nothing considering check the flop,call a so small bet instead of raising it.I wanted to take the pot right away.
This is so sick.How will u guys deal with this so-small bet situation.Am i played wrong?What's the correct read about EP happens?
