      Is it ok to call his 3b? I am oop, but don't want to go broke against him. On the other hand, I don't want to fold this hand either.. What do you think?

      It gets very difficult to play hands OOP in 3bet pots, I would advise against it in many, many situations. Here, I think you should simply go broke preflop, despite it being over a small sample, Villain's 3bet stat of 12.9% pretty much proves he's not a nit, and he could very well be 3betting you light here. I would 4bet him and if he shoves over the top call him off :)

      Hello Alleen86,

      While we even are a bit deeper in the play I don't like 4betting at all here. We are practically just forcing a lot worse hands to fold and better ones will continue. For us it's rather at the best a coinflip anyways. We don't have that good sample size or either any reads on him, therefore I'd rather just fold my hand being OOP and without any reads.

      Best regards.
