      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 5:heart: , 5:club:
      Hero raises to $0,75, CO raises to $1,75, BU calls $1,75, 2 folds, Hero calls $1,00.

      CO 3B is so small that i still can call with my small pp.

      Flop: ($5,65) 8:club: , 6:heart: , 5:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $3,8, CO raises to $7,60, BU folds, Hero raises to $15,80, CO calls $8,20.

      CO makes a cbet 80% of the time but will he do it in a 3way pot on this board?
      I didn't think so, so i just donked. He minraised me which could be a overpair and i decided to 3B rather small (1/2 potsize) since he still can call with a overpair and i don't want to see a cooler on turn OOP.

      Turn: ($37,25) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero raises $14,55 (All-In), CO calls $14,55.

      River: ($66,35) 4:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $66,35

      If the button had a bigger stack i would have went for a c/r probably due to relative postions. With BTN being short and you being deep i actually prefer leading since i doubt CO will cb that often here. I think sizing is OK but this is the smallest bet i can accept. You are deeper than normal with CO so make sure you bet big.

      When he raises this small. Hmm it doesn't seem like he has more than one pair. Kinda confusing actually. I would probably just shove. Try to tell him that i have 77 / 99 not being able to fold.

      Hi,

      Board isn´t that drawy, but since likely 7 and 9 would freeze your action I´d also lead 3-way to make sure all the money goes in against overpairs. I think small 3-bet is better than shove, since he would most likely call 14$ re-raise rather than 30$ shove.

      This hand is somewhat the same situation. The player is just fishier.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:heart: , 7:diamond:
      CO folds, BU calls $0,25, SB calls $0,10, Hero raises to $1,25, BU calls $1,00, SB folds.

      Flop: ($2,75) 9:diamond: , 7:club: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2,2, BU raises to $4,40, Hero raises to $8,50, BU calls $4,10.

      I raised so small for mostly the same reason as the above hand. Get pot big enough bevor a scary card comes. Should i 3B more? He got stats of 75/8 so i just don't wanted to scare away his 9x maybe 6x

      Turn: ($19,75) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $11, BU raises to $23,95 (All-In), Hero calls $10,55 (All-In), BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      River: ($62,85) 7:spade: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $62,85

      You´re going anyway likely on diamond turn so I think your small 3-bet size is fine. That would also keep in one pair hands that might fold bigger 3-bet
