      Hello xero100,

      3Betting in such situation is totally fine, I'd do most of the times that. Postflop is kinda awkward, 1st of all I'd make the CBet a bit bigger, at least $0.50. $0.45 is just crying for a Call. Otherwise the Q could be easily a very good 2nd barrel card for us, take into consideration that our 3bet pot line is very strong, also 2nd barreling one, he will often even fold his smaller PPs here and even if not then we still have pretty good equity against him. Therefore I'd bet the turn also.

      Best regards.
