      About the villain: it was 3 overraise in a row from him so I thought maybe he don't have a big hand, just like to make big raise pre-flop.

      Hello jeszkar,

      Preflop: If he really was raising that big always then I would towards to 3bet it preflop and avoid playing the hand OOP and in multiway pot. We don't want to see any overcards for us. And of course if I would go for 3bet then I'd play for the stacks.

      As played
      Postflop: If you even plan to continue on the turn then just ship it but obviously kind of overplayed the hand. :P Don't really see why we shouldn't raise it right preflop and play for the stacks if you plan to play it anyways even on such a board vs such play.

      Best Regards.
