      Hello ukwagon,

      Somehow I saw you having TT, sry for the wrong evaluation. Pretty standard there, going broke.

      Best regards.

      Howdy,

      I'll just add my 2 cents here, because I'd still would raise here.

      MP3 is pure fish, so he may have wide range of hands there and just because MP3 called MP1 could be tempted to call with more holdings pre than he would do that in HU pot.

      I'm not sure what does "-" mean by his AF, is it infinite? Well, anyway, my point is he has so smallish stack here I just couldn't fold. Little problem is MP3 acting behind you. If you raise biggish and he shoves it's not the best situation to be in, so I may raise smaller and most likely we should fold to shove from MP3 although he's 70/13. I just don't expect to usually 3bet them with worse here unless you are sure he's full of shit.

      Good luck!

      So when you say raise smaller do you mean around 38-46c ?

      Preflop raise is fine, I was thinking of raising smaller on flop, but that's just because I'm thinking of folding against 3bet shove from MP3 although it may not be good idea, because, as you see, Veriz suggests playing for stacks without much doubt.
