      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to 2.4 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 6 BB, CO raises to 12 BB, fold

      CO wins 12.4 BB

      When to call and when to 3 bet? What about smaller suited Aces or suited connectors in the same situation

      Hey DNYiancu,

      Depends on a few things.

      Bet-Sizing ----> You can defend any Axs vs a min-raise, but probably will want to bluff-or-fold some of the weaker Axs vs a 3x open.

      Stats ----> Vs wide opener you want to defend more hands. If opponent has a high Ft3bet you can bluff with the weaker Axs and flat with the stronger Axs. If he has a low Ft3bet you can start 3betting some of the stronger Axs for value but folding the weaker Axs if the opening size is too large.

      With given info would probably flat ATs here, because strong enough to defend vs the weaker sizing, but no info on whether it's ok to 3bet for value.
