      Villain-unknown.Is it ok to call vs the min 3bet from shorty or is it better to shove pre directly?I guess I have to broke on this board since his range contains many broadways against which I am ahead.

      Hello jozata,

      Preflop: I'd just fold it here since we ain't getting that great implied odds for set mining either. Plus we even don't know him. We can't expect to get his full stack if we hit our set.

      As played
      Postflop: As he did a small raise preflop then I am expecting him to continue his bet sizing almost the same as well postflop. I guess I would just fold it since I expect sometimes those kind of players as well play their overpairs this way as well and trying to trap. And how can you say that he is 3betting there broadways while he is unknown? We could as well say that he is a bad player who rather wont 3bet with worse hands and either defend his blind.

      Best regards.
