      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 = ($11.23)
      MP3 = ($13.39)
      CO = ($10.53)
      BU = ($10.00) (16/11 over 173 hands. Steal: 39%)
      SB (Hero) = ($11.72)
      BB = ($10.00)
      UTG2 = ($15.81)
      MP1 = ($16.01)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with QT offsuit.
      5 folds, BU raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $1.10, 2 folds, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.4.

      Fairly simple hand, I figured he was stealing wide, 3-bet him, hoped to take down the pot. With those stats, did I make the right play, and how was my sizing?

      Why not? Some players are folding to 3bets a lot and our goal is to find those spots and exploit them until they realize they should do something about that and even then it usually comes down to dumb preflop calls and we'll still own them. Having these edges are great for our winrate.

      Sizing is probably fine, just tend to make it the same w/ your value hands & bluffs - regs can notice difference. Ofc balancing is nonsense against fishes, so when you have valuehand just 3bet big against fishbones and just don't bluff them. Easy game. :)

      Good luck!
