      Villain was 23/20 foldBBvsSTeal 71 AF3 in 127 hands (he was defending his BB too much I think) ,here was a better option to call and reevaluate on turn ??? I didn't want to give him the initiative and If he shoved a fold would have been the better option ????

      If villain shoved you had to call.
      If BB went all-in the pot would've been 5.31$ (villains stack on the flop)+ 0.32$ + 2.42$ = 8.05$ > you had to add 2.89$ more which means you have 1:2.8 pot odds (you need 26% equity).

      But that wasn't you first question.

      Um, I wouldn't 3-bet the flop since you will take out all his air/bluffs and isolate yourself against strong draws/better hands.

      So call flop on his raise and evaluate/re-evaluate (what is the good term?) turn is the best option.

      Hello alexgrapid,

      For the reason that the board is so drawy I like the 3bet here. They often times tend to Check/Raise with draws and when we just Call such a small raise we just giving him great odds and not forcing him to make any mistakes. Therefore I don't even mind. If the flop would be more dry I'd consider Calling.

      Best regards.
