Although I like flatting small - mid pairs for implied odds
, , I 3 bet TT here a large percentage of the time from the button, simply because I am 3 betting CO opens with a ton of hands OTB, so to not include monsters like TT is terrible for meta purposes.
As played (a flat) you haven't defined your hand, which makes postflop a little more difficult, but that's fine we'll just adjust.
Flop is obviously standard
Turn peels and villain checks. A bet is certainly standard, but I prefer to increasing my bet sizing to a larger bet of 3/4 pot as opposed to the less than 1/2 pot you opted to bet.
- If villain has overs, I don't think he's peeling for 1/2 or 3/4 the pot
- If Villain has a flush draw, I don't think he's folding to either bet = we gain more value
- If villain has a mid pocket pair he's probably check calling either bet = we gain more value
- A larger bet lets villain put YOU on a flush draw easier (most people would tend to bet more on the semi bluff with higher hopes of taking it down now)
As played before betting you should have asked yourself how you would respond to a raise. IMO if the answer was fold then check behind and call down the river. If it was fold bc he'd only CR monsters but will c/c tons of hands, then the bet/fold is fine. If it's somewhere in the middle it gets cloudy.
Is villain the type to give up on the river when shown resistance or continue to pounce? If he won't fire a river shell empty, the turn is an easy call, since the river will be very easy to play. If he's trickier, again it gets cloudy.
His turn c/r bet sizing seems very strange to me though. You underbet the turn (less than .5 pot) and he like 2.5x's your raise. If you call the pot would be at 391 and he'd have 409 left in his stack....plenty to push you off the river....eh I guess I changed my mind here. Since he could raise larger to like 180 and leave the pot at 471 with 369 in his stack, enough for an all in river bluff to shove you off without being an underbet.... i was initially gunna say this raise seems sized to push you off on the turn if you have nothing but leaves enough for him to put you to the test big on the river but i dunno.... it's weird bc your most likely hand is a flush draw so raising this small seems weird to me, unless he's trying to get you to 3 bet semi bluff him with a big hand... or he could figure you for a float and is trying to bluff you off cheap if you have no hand.... or of course he could have AA and make the small cr bc he is trying to get called by one pair hands.
Overall (Im rambling) I think most villains are likely to just keep betting their big hands rather than c/r turns with them (unless they have some read that either 1- you spew a lot or 2- you float a lot but fold to 2nd shell, but will bet if checked to). C/Rs also show big strength and can lose value out of their hands. I dunno, I probably flat the raise with the intent of calling a brick river if I label villain as tricky enough to continue witht he majority of his bluffs on the river. If villain shows up with a set or AA or something I'll make note of it
