      Villain = TAG REG 15/11/6 af / 17 wtsd / 34% ATS / 1769 hands
      (p.s I did shortly leave the table when I realized being OOP vs a reg is not fun)

      I always struggle with these kind of spots.

      IMO I can either flat or 3b, my hand is much to strong to fold against this opponent.

      Flat - I dont have aggressive opponents to my left, so I'm not worried about getting squeezed here. BUT I really dont like playing my hand OOP without the initiative vs a reg. Since I might not always get HU and would have to either hit or DB bluff or check raise bluff if I miss. or check fold obviously

      3bet/fold: I know he is stealing / isolating the limper fairly wide here. After all there is only 1 limper so I wouldnt expect him to tighten up his BU range too much. In addition his ATS is 34% and his fold the 3b was 95%, so I can safely assume he's only 4betting me with QQ+/AKs and also that my 3b will be successful very often.

      Hello muel294,

      What about the fold to 3bet? But of course your line is totally fine. But keep in mind that don't get too much stuck with your hand. If he decides to 4bet then we also have to be ready to fold.

      Best regards.
