      Hello Avatars91,

      Not much you can do there, especially when you don't even have much of reads on him. Myself I'd even sometimes just Call and play postflop, depending on the opponent.

      Best Regards.

      1) You probably wouldn't recommend that to me though, as I am still a bit too inexperienced and often make mistakes in marginal situations, right?

      You can always try it out and see how you do with it. Also can pay track with your Call plays but usually the safest play would be 3bet if the guy as well folds to a lot 3bets and rather not if he doesn't and just Call then. Hard to play OOP in 3bet pot.
