      Hello Sikac,

      Always when you ask such a question you should also mention what kind of opponents you have there. :P But overall vs unknown seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.

      My reason here for 3betting was that I didn t want to have a 4or 5 way pot. I this a good argument for 3betting or should I just call and sit IP in a multiway pot?

      Well, I don't really see any problem with playing even with JJ in multiway pot if we face a really tight opponent. If you think he is going to Call against you with worse hands then sure, go for the 3bet.
