      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $2, SB raises to $6, fold, Hero raises to $13.50, SB calls $7.50

      FLOP ($27.50) 6:diamond: 9:club: 7:club:

      SB checks, Hero bets $18.50, SB raises to $38.15 (AI), Hero folds

      SB wins $61.50

      villain 22/17/3 wts 19 3b 6% (15% 3b in SB vs Steal).
      I elect to 4b pre with blockers, which is fine.

      Once Im called, should I just give up? I hoped to get AK to fold, but I guess my cb is just burning $ vs his oop call of my 4b?

      I think you gain more if you just flat his 3b and play postflop ip
      Since I doubt you´re going to 4b/call there with AJ
      If you bet that big on the flop you have to call with backdoor flushdraw and overcards, since he can always shove with draws, gutshots and so on. You also have option to check behind and hope you can check it down, but then you´re just giving up and I think he would stab quite often
      So I would choose 3rd option and b/f to 8$, it looks quite strong, since seems like you don´t afraid anything and if he shoves you can easily fold your hand saving 10$. If he calls I´d shove, club, J, K, likely Q and b/c with A
