      This depends on a few things - how often is CO open raising from that position? What range does he call 3-bets with, how often does he fold to c-bets?

      Calling/3-betting is closed based on the information available but calling is fine.

      I self 3bet agaisnt 18/17 and fold to 4bet, opponent looks like tag so he will understand that we have a hand. Although calling may seem good but it leaves us with no information and this type off hand will be hard to play oop against opponent who will very often fire bet on flop and maybe even other streets if he gets some piece off it.

      I misread the hand and thought we were on the BTN. From the big blind I think raising is better than calling.

      However, I don't think we should ever raise primarily for information (although getting information is a result of the raise). We should raise primarily (a) for value (because we think we will get called by worse hands), or (b) as a bluff (because we think worse hands will fold).

      opponent ... will understand that we have a hand


      IMHO this is thinking about poker it in the wrong way - we don't want the CO to know what we have.

      Hello Oly0909,

      Preflop: Against such a stealing range you can easily even 3bet it here.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine. He is CBetting anyways his whole range.

      Best regards.
