      Hello Kaidz,

      First of all the 3bet has to be bigger. While he does a raise and there is a Caller standard raise would be 3x his raise +1 per Call. So about ~$0,24 should it be definitely, while even being OOP I might consider doing it $0,30.

      And as even played and he is unknown it's hard to imagine him doing such a line with just a lot weaker hands. And at the best we get a coinflip here. Therefore I might even consider doing 3bet/Fold but if you expect the opponent to go broke rather looser than just with strong range like QQ+ then should be fine.

      Best regards.
