      Is it better to 3bet such kind of hands or just to flat them ? Since the guy doesn´t even have full stack I think about him as a bad player in general therefore I´d not put him on some kind of tight range (because I don´t think he takes into consideration position and other important factors.)

      Hello acceleration123,

      Actually only what I can say from such a stack is that he ain't a good player while having such a stack. And not much perfect play like if the 3bet is correct there or not. Although it's definitely doable but what's your plan if he for example 4bets you? Do you plan to go broke? Often times I'd ask those questions and then decide either I am 3betting him or not. Often times when I plan to 3bet I am as well having in mind to go broke, although it's not like a must but it could as well be versions where I want to 3bet for making the opponent to fold while he has somewhat big fold to 3bet where I could even 3bet looser.

      I'd rather ask you, how has he been playing on table. Has he rather been nitty one? Has he been opening a lot of hands?

      Best regards.
