Hero's Image: Been bleeding some pots for a while now, perceived as thinking, might be steaming/tilted semi-aggressive TAG young kid. Not many regs on this table, so they prob don't know I'm a reg.
EP limps, MP limps, hero raises to $30 with T :r: T :r: , BB calls, EP calls, MP calls,
Flop $120: Q :r: Q :r: T :r:
All three checks, Hero bets $40
Here's my thought process: I would cbet this board majority of the time for small sizing like 1/3 (accomplishes most of what I need) with hands like AA/KK/JJ/AK and AQ. Except for AQ, these hands cannot handle a X/R nor can they really get three streets of value (perhaps small thin on river). So this range is pretty exploitable overall. I figured if I lead with TT here, it'd strengthen that range and punish anyone trying to take advantage of me with a X/R.
Note: It's a lot easier to make money triple barreling down (can be AA,KK or a bluff) when someone is holding a Queen in their hand. If we check flop, our lines are Raise turn, Bomb river, or Call turn, Raise Bomb River. Both apply massive pressure and most people will assume AA/KK wouldn't take this line when QQT are on the board. So it's really weird.
Ofc the downside is when they all fold and we don't give them a chance to catch up or pick up some equity which is pretty much drawing dead at that point.
Your thoughts? Balance the range (all sorts of benefits) or let opponents catch up when we have the board locked.
