On the flop, without backup really I decided to check 3-way and go for a c/r if IP bet. That way I can dramatically lower the SPR and deny quite a bit of equity. What I'm unsure about with the line I took if its better to c/r pot to $27.50 or if my sizing is alright to $21? Am I giving too good of a price to call for hands like JT9x?
I think you should be betting here since your OPPs are weak and most likely passive.
As played OTT I think we have to check/fold if he pots it.

Its obviously would be better if we can see the preflop stats, but feels like it's pretty close. I think we should be jamming here, but we might be up against KKxx, QQxx a lot if the villain is a passive player.

IMO you can consider betting smaller like 1/2-1/3 bet, your hand does need a protection but vs his flop calling range you are not that far ahead. You can definitely consider checking back as well, since you do have some outs to improve and you do have bdfd which gives you a little bit of playability.

First of all, just fold pre, second of all 1/2 to 2/3 bet on the flop, same OTT obviously for value and protection. The river is just a fold, can't imagine he is donking with any bluffs ever especially a weak player.

Totally agree with devwil crystal clear call, since we can be potentially freerolled and we have an easy fold OTT when the board pairs or when spades draw completes. You just can donk ship your stack on the blank turn protecting your hand.

I think your comment is on point, I definitely can bet the flop and turn or somehow at least think more about it.
devwil What are you betting on this flop? (You're still PFR and we're still 3 to the flop.)
I will ask you then, what range would you bet, cause you question is very comprehensive, tough to reply correctly for me. So I'll happily take your suggestion and advice Also what do you think about bet sizes if we decided to bet, let's assume flop we 3way and turn we are HU.

Folding pre is a good option, as you can see I'm posting this hand to get more fresh thoughts and opinions as I definitely only building my own strategy.
You've said they're loose, but are they "fire three bullets without the nuts" loose? If not, you can fold the river more often.
This player looks like more on a tighter post-flop side, so folding river seems good.

I have a question, is this guy a reg or recreational player. I've never seen players check GII with something except AAxx on Axx boards, but why they do take this line over and over again? Isn't it just too silly to check-raise this board with AAxx, only reasons to check-raise should be situations when we have a top set on a super wet board or something like nut fd+OESD when we are actually trying to get better hands to fold and maximize our fold equity and if we check-GII we flipping at least and if flop goes check-check on a blank we can just simply check-give up or check-call depends on the sizing on the turn since we don't have a good EQ anymore. Feels like we can simply bet 1/3 on the flop and just fold or we can check back, ofc it's very exploitable and we definitely have to have some reads. Let me know guys what do you think.

Agree with Bingo 123 For me it's easy check-decide, you will often take your hand to showdown, some hands like A-high will just give up on the river, so we either try to get them off the hand by betting and risking some $$$ or we might just check and win anyways. We could also check-call vs aggressive opponents, overpairs should be taking a passive line on this river often enough for us to be checking IMO.

Overall I agree wth Jeff_ but looks like for betting we need to have a pretty wide betting range OTF, that's way to thin to extract value, maybe we can bet vs fish to get to SD. I really believe that we don't have to call the turn since we don't have any no specific reads and we are playing vs regular who should be playing very straightforward. I would just fold, calling the turn is way too expensive, and if we always face 2 bets (turn/river), we should be calling the river with some frequency which isn't that great of an idea.

First of all, I don't like 3Bting this hand all the time, vs 30-40% BU RFI we should flat a decent portion of the time since we just don't have to play big pot OOP. 3B 40-50% of the time vs supper wide range is fine. Betting this flop is on an aggressive approach I guess, having two overs+bd fd is also reasonable for betting the flop, but I would just check-fold, simply too bad of a flop for our range and too good for BU 3B calling range. Turn is just check fold vs unknown, nothing you can do really since OESD isn't folding and hands like J8, J9, J7, floats like AJ, QJ, KJ, JT are improved, so I don't see a reason for a barreling him off the hand with no real EQ. The river is just total spewiness, just can't see a reason to bet, you repping only hands like sets and 4x and 89, seems like you shouldn't ever have this hands at the beginning after 3B from BB.

Yes, It's 2nd scenario, so I pretty much sure he is a recreational player. I assume if we know that this player has a tendency to pot river with a stone cold bluff, we definitely have to start calling with trips on this board.

It's definitely debatable about whether we should cbet or check back, but I think what you can do is consider to bet smaller, around 40-50% of the pot. Vs weaker players I would always bet big though, so it all depends on the player pool.
