      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0,08, 3 folds, BU calls $0,08, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,19) A:spade: , A:club: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,09, BU raises to $0,20, Hero raises to $2,50 (All-In), BU folds.

      I wonder whether I should have slow-played this hand by calling the villain's 3-bet or not. Thank you.

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, I don't like that much your play. :D I'd rather make a CBet of ~$0,12 and then reevaluate the further action. If he still raises then we can even 3bet against him but I wouldn't ship it. :D Shipping might just scare away a lot weaker hands, unless he expects you to level yourself here. With shipping you are anyways representing a very strong hand and rather made hand than a bluff.

      One option of course would be to Bet/Call it and donk the turn as well to avoid him Checking behind. But at this case it might be the reason that you made a small bet which made him to bluff against you.

      Best regards.
