      Vill: 55/0/22 hands only but he lost 3 dollars in those 22 hands already!

      Did I play this correctly or is it better to just call his 3bet and maybe get it in on the turn?

      There are many turns you won't like so getting it in on the flop is definitely better move. Also, your opp looks bad so he might do that with some TP kind of hand or he's a gambler and wants to go broke with FD. Just raise/ go broke on this flop.

      Hello RasTweet,

      Against that kind of opponent there is no way we are going to fold our 2pairs here. Definitely considering also to go broke, although I would bet even bigger the flop at least $0,18 since it wont matter for him much anyways and of course the 3bet sizing would b also bigger and not give him great odds for a draw. :D But of course if we take into account the stack sizes the 3bet size ain't that off anyways.

      Best Regards.
