Overlimped from SB.
Question is if I should have played the hand differently?
Showdown will be posted afterwards

Like the pre-flop overlimp. On the flop, leading, check-calling or check-raising are all fine options because the board is super dry. What is most optimal depends on in-game dynamics and how your opponents are playing.

As played, when you check-raise the flop and villain donks into you on the turn you should be raising here 100% of the time. The reason being is we have a set and if villain doesn’t have a bigger set, we have the nuts. Our goal is to maximize value and get stacks in on the turn or river. So when villain leads the turn, raise. 🙂

*** Showdown ***

pekkel shows a pair of Kings [KdKc] Hero shows three of a kind Threes [3h3d] and wins



Ok, I will be raising the turn as well next time.
Will villain still call an all-in bet on the river after 2 raises?
