      Hello Sikac,

      Well, first I'd ask even why do you 3bet-shove here? He will have hard time Calling with a lot worse hands. Most likely I'd do a normal 3bet and then reevaluate the further actions but it's gonna be hard to get away here with straight while the guy could easily have pair/2pairs/pair+draw or maybe even just a draw.

      Best Regards.

      I 3bet shove because I just keep it simple. I know there a a lot of possible scary cards then can fall on the river or turn and simply make me uncomfortable with my hand. I m not secure in my postflop play OOP with this hands against such players who are willing to call with a lot worse hands. So my leak is to deal with this maniacs having such a big hand OOP postplof, I m just trying to avoid my leaks and keep it simple.
