      Hello XyRo,

      Preflop: Depends a lot on the opponent here but if he rather has a smaller 3bet then I'd basically even consider folding unless he really does raise us more often.

      As played
      Postflop: You basically turning your hand into bluff and trying to make a AK type of hand to fold. Not really big fan of it, I'd rather Check/Call and reevaluate on further streets than Check/Raise/Fold as you did. Why did you Check/Raise even, what was your plan with it?

      Best regards.
