      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: Well, what's your first idea of the Call 3bet here? Do you think he was capable of 3betting very light?

      As played
      Postflop: Nah, not really. I wouldn't raise the flop while you can easily just isolate against very strong hands. On the turn I'd really base on the reads on him and how often he is capable of 2nd barreling. Sometimes I might Call there while the Q is a good scare-card for him. But once again it's a 3bet pot and it's really close play and the passive approach is the most safest one.

      Best Regards.
