      Hello Tosh5457,

      Usually such a line as he is picking against you like min-bet on flop for induce a raise and then 3betting like he did is often a strong hand. Very often a trap and therefore I guess I'd be really inclined rather to Raise/Fold it. :(

      If he wanted to have fold equity then I am pretty sure that he would just ship it directly.

      Best regards.

      Yea that's true, would you call if he shoved directly after my raise?

      Well, yeah. I guess then I'd make the crying Call for the given stack sizes. Although even then it's kinda close. Since most of the time it's the case that such a min-bet/3bet usually indicates to a very strong hand rather than just 1pair.
