      Hello kidzoltan,

      Preflop: Since it's BvB, it's kinda close, although I don't think that we hit that often enough with our hand to make such a Call very profitable. We will be just in trouble when we miss the flop. Other option would be just to Call his raise and let him bluff if we hit our Ace or something similar. We still can extract value from him postflop, even in smaller pots. But definitely 3betting is fine, don't really like the Call that much. Unless we have good reason to do that.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd rather just Call and let him continue with his bluffs on turn, and if he doesn't Bet there then I'd just ship it.

      Best regards.
