Playing 2/5, six-handed, effective stacks are $490. Villain sat down a couple orbits ago and hasn't played many hands. I know he is a reg but don't know his style.
CO raises to $15, I three-bet to $45 with TT. BB calls, CO thinks a bit then calls. Pot is $135.
Flop is AcTc6c. BB checks. CO bets $50.
What's my play? If I shove, I am betting $400 into a pot of $235, and I'm afraid he will call with all made flushes and fold all else, including Ax and a stiff Kc or Qc. BB could possibly have a flopped flush too, but it isn't likely.
If I min-raise, I might induce a shove from weaker hands (and all the made flushes too). But a min-raise may actually look stronger than a shove to Ax hands.
If I flat, I give a free card to Kc, Qc, Jc. Also if the board pairs on turn or river, a flush might fold to a shove.
what's the best way to play flopped sets and two-pairs on monotone flops?
In this particular case, I min-raised, BB folded, CO jammed. I called. He had Jc9c.
