      Hello weller123,

      Preflop: Basically even 3betting sometimes is pretty close here while rush ranges could easily be a lot tighter and we can't be sure that we are doing the 3bet for value. Although it's doable.

      As played
      Postflop: As you went for 3bet then basically your plan is most likely to go broke with such a hand on such board. He may easily have worse pairs even there and not only PPs. Maybe even some AK type of hand. If you don't want to play for stacks on such a flop then rather don't 3bet for value preflop either.

      Best regards.

      If i was to just to call his raise how should I be playing postflop on the same board?

      You can still continue Calling and going for pot control and reevaluating on further streets. He ain't gonna barrel a lot anyways if he doesn't have a hand and there you will spend almost the same money.

      Against known opponents who are opening wide I don't mind the 3bet at all, although I would likely play for stacks postflop as I mentioned earlier.
