      I was curious about this one! ...

      I raised just 3BB because I think it's guite better because if you get 3bet like this it's still close to cold call in some pots and you are getting better odds usually if I would raise .20 here he would make it at least .60 and it's kind of crap I think. (wrong thoughts? or is it ok?)
      Still against this guy 13/6 I can expect same effect of .15 as .20 :)

      So why did I call? I think that he has really big hand and I can easily stack him if I hit set, also because there is still maybe 10% he is doing it with margial hand and we can check it to the river. My pot odds are about 35%, so even if I should have folded as the Starting hand chart says I called here.(+ I was in position)..

      Flop: He raised and I was like 80% sure he has the ace, I was just afraid of AA :) ) ...I raised him quite strong as I wanted to protect from flushdraws(even though I don't expect FD very often as I think he has the ace)... Also by the reraise I just commited myself in the pot and was ready to go allin on turn even if flush comes... He did it easier for me because he reraised me again :) so easy call .. (but I was like omg, omg ... he would show AA :D )

      Hello KillerFishes,

      Preflop: Yeah, I often times from BU also use such a raise size. So I don't mind at all. And when he raises us we are getting pretty good odds for set mining ~21:1 so I don't mind at all.
      Postflop: And I am definitely raising it here and going broke as you did. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
