      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero) = ($10.44)
      BU = ($10.50) (44/0 over 34 hands. 0.6 flop aggression)
      SB = ($10.00)
      BB = ($4.04)
      UTG1 = ($11.85)
      UTG2 = ($9.46)
      MP1 = ($10.00)
      MP2 = ($3.64)
      MP3 = ($10.00)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T :diamond: , T :spade: .
      4 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $0.90, BU calls $0.90, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($2.85) J :heart: , 9 :diamond: , 2 :diamond: (3 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks, BU bets $0.90, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $2.25, BU raises to $9.60, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.10.

      I'm not sure if I played this hand right or not. Naturally, the result turned out bad, so I'm biased.

      My questions are:

      1) Did I 3-bet too small preflop? I'm almost certain I did
      2) I felt my opponent's bet on the flop was a blocking bet, and that very few hands would flat a 3-bet, rather than 4-bet. I had him on TT-JJ, AK, and it's almost impossible he had TT. So I felt most of his range was AK, so I re-raised him to see if he would cave. Was this correct?

      3) Looking back on it, I feel if I'd looked at my opponent's stats, I should have just folded to the flop bet. What do you think?

      Hello Salivanth,

      Preflop: Basically I wouldn't even 3bet such a nit with 0 PFR. Rather just call for set value and if I would 3bet then likely the sizing ain't that wrong with position.

      As played
      Postflop: Rather just CBet the flop while there are possible draws and as well he could easily have worse hands. And basically if I do Check the flop then Check/Fold.

      Best regards.
