      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: I don't really like the 3bet here unless you have a good reason to do that. Rather just fold the hand, being OOP and also it ain't that strong either to satisfy the Call.

      As played
      Postflop: Rather just Bet/Fold, he often has here bigger overpair. Although we could of course ask ourself why do we raise preflop and then hitting our TP and then fold, the reason is just our plan preflop was to make him fold not going broke against him postflop if we hit our TP.

      Best regards.

      Ok ... lets imagine the following situation.

      Don´t know anything yet about the opponent.

      Everyone folds, but he raises from BU (CO). Can I 3bet AJ from SB here ? (Pretending his raise is a steal)

      Yep, yep can raise there for the reason that he often times as well might just steal there. Although I wouldn't really do that on NL2 or NL4, more often they ain't stealing there that often and also are Calling your 3bets very light.
