      Hello LuckyDimes,

      It's kinda close, for the reason that SB also Check/Raise and we even don't have top2. Therefore I guess I sometimes even just fold the hand while we haven't invested much into the pot. But as well continue should be fine, although I don't like the 3bet there just for the reason that it looks like too strong. Rather just Call it and play on further streets.

      Best regards.
