Hi all,

So this is my first post as a red chipper.

I make a standard raise in LP with 77. SB 3bets. I'll be honest, not much thought went into this hand and I didn't much of an effort to put him on a range. But looking back now I don't think he's 3betting very wide from the blinds, especially against MP+2.

I hit a set OTF and decide to check to the PF raiser as he has a high cbet stat (100% out of a sample of 4). He bets and I call.

Turn comes and I follow the same plan, though this time I decide to reraise to protect against any draws. He calls and I assume he is playing a hand like AQ, AK, KQ that I beat and will still pay me off.

River gives a 10, with no possibility of flush draws. Unfortunately it gives a four to a straight, meaning my opponent needs only a Jack.

I feel I played this hand very badly given that I did not pay attention to the four to a straight, nor did I consider what my opponent was calling the reraise OTT with. I'd love to hear your guys' thoughts anyway to see how this would have been best played.

    Shouldn't be that many Jx in players range. AdJd, QdJd and that's about it. I guess KJs as well.

    Have to be here little more than 20% of the time getting 4:1 almost. Seems ok to call.

    I agree with @Austin.

    Note that you can't "check to the raiser" in this hand since you act second.

    Oh my bad @moishetreats, I thought I was OOP.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    SB is 3 betting frequently (I know sample is small. Call this a Bayesian inference). Can consider a 4 bet on this spot, or calling the small 3 bet IP is good too.

    On the flop I'm ready to play for stacks. Kq his his range hard (lots of top pair/two pair in his range) so I'd be ok to raise here ESPECIALLY if you'd also raise your JT or flush draw in this spot.

    As played, I'm still calling off, as he often shoves a 2 pair here and as Austin points out, our odds are great.
