This is obviously a dream scenario but could end in a nightmare.

Now we are up against a very aggressive fishy player. A set is unlikely as surely he is 3 betting TT/JJ IP. So that leaves us with 2 pair hands, Qx hands and of course the dream Q9. But what I am worried about is a flush draw which he could very well have here.

So now the question is how much do you 3 bet? This is an interesting greed vs value decision. He is a bad player that is for sure but I have not figured yet just how bad.

So if your 3 bet gets called how do you react if a diamond hits the turn or a pair? I personally am willing to make a committing turn bet with a pair as sets are unlikely but really scared of a turn diamond.

I also really don’t want a situation where let’s say he has Q9, decides to call my 3 bet and then cooler cards destroy the action on future streets. If he really has Q9 I am 99% sure he would even call an outright shove. As aggressive as he may seem he wasn’t 2 betting post flop all that much.

Maybe I should just make it 150 BB? It won’t matter what comes on the turn then.
