One more question: If we 3B OTT, do we overbet shove or go 3-4x despite being obviously commited? Both options are a bit weird to me as the overbet shove is ridiculously large for the pot while the 3-4x is obviously committing us and destroying our equity if only called and a bad river hits.

I know we should not in general post results but just wanted to say for educational purposes (as on 2+2 quite some forum members advocated folding on Stars at NL5z) spot on! V overplayed QJ here and I dig your analysis of that hand

Thanks all!
Just on opening T8s in MP:
Great and actually interesting to know that two of you are fine with it. I have been playing around with openings in the last few days as I felt I'm a tad loose UTG and too tight in MP and CO, at least when I look at my RFIs. Thing is NL5z, to which I just changed back after a downswing in NL10, has really surprised me in terms of high 3B frequencies so I still wonder if widening up in MP to suited gappers is appropriate - which I wish as I love playing such hands. Still, haven't seen a general range which would suggest that. Any hints to go deeper on the topic?

Btw, anyone sees a reraise OTT?

Cheers all!

On folding PF:
Even against a very tight BB 3B range of TT+, ATs+, AQo+, KQs we have around 33% equity at almost exactly these pot odds IP.
Also, assuming we would only open really tight on BU with 22+, Axs, K/Q/J/T9s+, A/K/Q/JTo+, 76s+, if we fold AJo we would not defend more than a third of our opening range, so not meeting our MDF.

Based on that, I do not see a fold pre here. Or is there anything I'm missing?

V is 22/19/8 after 30ish hands only.

What's my line here and where does my thinking go wrong?

PF, is 4B/fold an option? Didn't really consider it then..

In my limited understanding, this flop hits us harder or is at least equalizing V's and our range and I raised V's small range bet OTF to not let him lay himself the right odds for all draws, charge them properly and see where we are at.

I feel V's call OTF is quite strong, so after Q for flush and straight draws hit OTT and V could very well still hold QQ+, I elect to check. Or should we jam for our Jd which gives us still some equity in many situation when we are behind?

V's shove OTR was looking too strong to call, given that we as well could have value raised JJ/88/(55) or semi-bluff raised with a flush draw/T9s and elected to trap OTT. At the same time, don't we have to call here with SPTK? I still can't see too many hands which V turns into a bluff but at the same time wonder if we have enough bluff catchers in our range if we fold that. Bit lost..
