      UTG openraise range = 26%,
      Fto3B = 50%

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:spade: , Q:spade:
      MP2 raises to $0,90, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,90, BU calls $0,90, SB folds, Hero raises to $4,50, MP2 folds, CO calls $3,60, BU folds.

      I 3B for value since i'm way ahead of MP2 range. Try to get headsup with CO and go for stacks if i hit. Size ok?

      Flop: ($10,95) 7:heart: , 5:diamond: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO raises $10,29 (All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $10,95

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $36,45
      BB:
      $27,23

      BU openrange = 40%
      BU Fto3B = 60%

      BB 4B range on BB is 3,8%

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , J:spade:
      3 folds, BU raises to $0,60, Hero raises to $2,50, BB raises to $5,75, 2 folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      The question is if i think BB is capable of abusing such resteal situations with 4B (since he has a wide 4B range).
      I don't think he can so i put him on a stronger range than 3.7% so i folded.
      Such plays rarely happens on my limit, never have seen it from BB. I he does it more often i will ship more loosely.

      Final Pot: $5,60

      Hi,

      1) your 3-bet size is fine pf. I think c/f that flop is also fine
      2) If you haven´t seen really these plays that often then folding is perfectly fine. If my image is very bad and I think other villain is good thinking player then I would shove JJ that spot, since I get sometimes 4-bet bluffed and sometimes he woud 4-bet/call hands like AQ and TT besides AK and QQ+

      Best regards,
