      Is it ok to try to get it all in on the flop ? he 3-bet me pre-flop and i thought he was on a strong hand QQ+ if he doesn't have AA or AK im ok... what do you think?

      Hello Bogdan1190,

      Preflop: Well, what's the reason for Calling the 3bet? Without knowing the opponent I wouldn't even Call it here. At the best it's for us a coinflip. But while you even don't know the opponent and will be playing OOP it will be pretty hard for us to play the hand profitable.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, of course I don't like that Check/Raise at all either. I mean even if he has QQ/KK he will never continue with them if you raise here. Rather Call and reevaluate further streets. But if you put him on such a hand then you can never-ever Call preflop, it would be not profitable in long run.

      Best Regards.
