      Calling a 3bet OOP is just awful.Here,you only have two options:shove or fold.Shove if you know your opponent will squeeze light,but i don't see that being the case,ESPECIALLY at NL2,plus his 3bet size is quite big,he most likely has JJ+/AK in which case you are a 2:1 dog.

      If you think his 3betting range is wider,you can shove,but i dont think so,given his sizing.

      Sizing is very strange from BU. Plus he isn't full stacked. If you have any reads on him 3betting too much then just shove it all in preflop, if not I fold. Calling is out of the question because we're OOP and he's not full stacked, which means we're forced to call a lot of the time just because we have great odds.
