      First thing i think i this board with my hand against a MSS with this stats is to c/c c/rai, but that size in the cbet puts me uncomfortable :evil:

      Hi Lunitis,

      Preflop: QJo can be both a call or a 3-bet preflop. Considering that he cbets so much and then folds to raises I would also call and play aggressively postflop. I'd actually call with a very wide range and play this way.

      The one thing we have to keep in mind preflop is that the 3-bet will show a profit. The only question is if the flat can show a bigger profit, and this all depends on how you play versus him.

      Flop: Considering that he is short he will get the money in lighter here.

      With that being said I still feel that he will have a lot of garbage cbetting this and hands that can bet/fold (like a 9x, 7x, etc).

      I wouldn't necessarily like to c/c and c/raise because villain may check the turn a lot once we call here (his double barrel isn't that high). So because of that I don't mind ck/raising this flop.
