      This is why we need to discuss 3betting preflop asap.

      It's just a fold preflop and I'll explain why when we meet up on Skype.

      As per usual Manu is right, fold preflop and avoid such a shitty postflop spot.

      As played postflop, you cannot get it in in a 3bet pot here, lets say his range consists of JJ+ and AQs+, AKo+. By raising we fold out JJ and AK, and just leave us with one split pot and a load of situations where we're massively behind.

      Hello Spungeh,

      Preflop: Wouldn't say that it's like a huge mistake to flat it but as long your postflop edge and skill isn't that good I would strongly advice to 3bet/Fold it and turn your hand into bluff rather than Flat/Flat like you did. What do you expect to beat if he squeezes you? Neither you wont play such hand profitable by calling vs the squeeze.

      As played
      Postflop: If you even raise here, what worse hands do you expect him to continue? If you even raise then why do you flat the 3bet? Rather just get it in if you raised for value.

      Best Regards.
