      MP: $20.50 (102.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $39.31 (196.6 bb)
      BTN: $20.20 (101 bb)
      SB: $20.90 (104.5 bb)
      BB: $22.08 (110.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A J
      MP raises to $0.70, Hero raises to $2.40, BTN folds, SB calls $2.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($5.70) 7 3 A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $4.27, SB raises to $8.54

      MP is 26/24 loose aggressive who I think I am ahead of and can outplay on flop if he calls (Cbet fold on flop is 72%)

      SB is 20/15 AF 3.6 WTSD 29.2

      What would you do?

      Hello Rastlin1,

      Well, what kind of hands do you expect the SB to call with what you beat? Do you think he is capable even paying with a lot worse on the flop vs such a Bet sizing?

      Best Regards.

      I expect him to have Ax or small pairs. The min raise to me can be weak actually however this is one of my major leaks, I overplay top pairs a lot I think and find it hard to just give them up

      It's a 3bet pot mate. :P How many worse Ax hands do you expect him to have? And why do you think he is taking a stab in 3bet pot vs you and your bet size?
