Could reraise pf to 1600ish and find out where you are there (and improve your postlop image), but as played, no problem. 99, TT and complete bluff are all you beat and without a better read you can't put him on that narrow a range.

Good fold.

Your sample size of hands wasn't particularly big though, I'm guessing? I think just calling is fine. If you reraise his UTG raise, I can only see you reasonably getting more action from AK/AA-QQ, rarely TT.. not enough of a read to suggest otherwise. Then postflop, the fact that he checkraised instead of leading out seems to weigh it a little more towards a set or AA-ish hands and less towards TT-99 than usual frequencies. TT-99 really don't want to risk that it get checked around, and check-raising with them practically turns them into bluffs. Fold looks good

I think you're combining UTG with SB, combu, or else I'm misreading what you're saying and you're putting both players on the same range of hands. UTG raises pf, Chuck and SB call, SB checkraises flop, UTG and Chuck fold.


For what it's worth in this company, I'm inclined to repop preflop, as played fold to the checkraise for the reasons you stated. It could be playing back at a possible positional stab at the flop but if so they may have some nice draws.

I think a 3-bet pre-flop is in order. Folding the flop is fine.

Oh you're right NL, I got the action wrong. My opinion preflop still stands unaffected. And postflop I still like a fold because of the checkraise, even though the range isn't as narrow as I originally thought. Just makes it look more like a set than a big overpair

I really just don't like 3betting preflop.. we get more money in the pot against hands who crush our range (QQ+, AK), and we let 88-TT fold easily
