      Hello DrDunne,

      If you decide to go for a 3bet here then there is no other way to play the hand. Since against his stack I am not turning my hand into bluff.

      Either way I'd just fold it or go for a 3bet. Of course we could discuss about calling but now again some people are behind us already, what kind of opponents they are and stuff.

      Best regards.
