      CO: $5.57 (139.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $1.22 (30.5 bb)
      BB: $6.65 (166.3 bb)
      UTG: $1.04 (26 bb)
      MP: $5 (125 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 9
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.14, Hero raises to $0.44, 3 folds

      Results: $0.34 pot
      Hero mucked A 9 and won $0.34 ($0.20 net)

      Our opponent is a multitabler with the following stats: VP/PFR/AF/3bet/hands 17/13/3.0/3.0/95 Steal from CO: 30

      Is this a good spot to abuse by 3betting?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Especially against a known opponents with the Ace blocker seems to be fine. I don't even mind, we definitely have fold equity there. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      What I didn't pay attention here is actually that SB had a small stack. But overall it shouldn't be that cruel mistake. But if you are wanting to play the hand then it's gonna be towards 3bet/Fold or just fold directly.

      Wow, neither did I. Can we fold against his push and stack size? Does SBs stack size not make us want to 3bet a tighter range?

      If we are 3betting there then against SB stack it's gonna be hard. Most likely we wouldn't be able to do that, especially when he is loose. :D And yes, it's towards us to have tighter range, most likely something like AJ+.

      Would flatting with AJo in this spot not be the preferable way of playing the hand to keep weaker Ax hands in the pot? Otherwise the initial raiser just too often folds A5-AT and rather stays in the hand with AJ+

      I'd pay attention how loose opponents we have behind us, if rather loose and we might even expect to see 3way/4way pot then rather not. Especially if you have loose squeezers which will happen on higher stakes.
