      Was my call on hes re raisse mistake?
      The Villain was initial preflop raiser and hes re raise on flop was a clear sign that my KK are dominated.
      What do you guys think ?

      Your 3bet is too small. You're giving him 3 to 1, and he's has position. Needs to be at least $1.

      Hello Sinnology,

      Preflop: Your raise size is way too small, ~$1,30-1,40, since there is also a limper and we are OOP.

      As played
      Flop: Just Bet/Fold it, he ain't raising us with a lot worse, unless we have good reads or stats for that.

      As played
      Turn: Check/Fold.

      Best regards.

      Hi Sinnology!

      Preflop: You are OOP, you have 1 flat call in hand, therefore I would POT size raise ~ $51.2-1.3

      Flop: I would bet little bit over 1/2 POT here so in your case like you did may be $1.
      At this point you have A high dry board, you showed him a lot of strenght by raising preflop from worse position and he is still rasining you. I am inclided fold here unless he is really tricky. Call to min raise is good for bluf catching, but when he bets on turn and we decide to call it is for whole stacke and we are most likely behind. Even single river bet might put us significantly deep or all-in when he overbets (in case he decided to check behind on turn).

      Turn: I am folding here.
