      Hero checks, MP+1 bets $3.75, Hero calls $3.75



      As you can see I'm in big mess now. I'm not talking about call on the river beacuse I knew that I was behind. I decided to call for information.

      I'm talking about preflop that I completely don't know how to play easy hands...

      How should I 3bet pre flop?
      I can see few reasons:
      - we are OOP
      - we don't want to play in multyway pot because he don't know what to do BB
      - we don't want to be squeezed bu BB player

      I have problem know when I should have just call? Please explain me it...

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop the play is fine, although what I don't like that much to Call down 3 streets while the opponent rather is winning at the showdowns. I don't really see many hands what we beat anyways and any weaker Ax is he checking behind on the river.

      Best Regards.

      What about 3betting pre?

      He has a high fold to PF 3bet, and BB will most likely fold facing two raises.

      Both options are fine. Even 3betting shouldn't be a problem, especially if the guy folds enough to 3bets and we avoiding exactly such a play as hero did.
