      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9, A.
      6 folds, BU raises to $0.12, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.36, BU calls $0.24.

      Flop: ($0.74) 4, 8, 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.48, BU raises to $1.86(All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.22.

      Is this a bad board to cbet? I think it's quite dry and he's only continuing with a PP or a good A high

      I'd be more conservative 3b bluffing vs a short stack. And if he proves to fold a lot to 3bets I'd make the 3bet a bit smaller maybe .30 just because he is short

      As played i think the Flop bet is too big, I'd rather make it 1/2 pot in a 3b pot.

      Hello thebaptist333,

      Fold preflop vs 50BB guy without any information. :)

      Best Regards.

      I'm sorry I didn't post villains stats but I can promise you that if I 3bet A9o in SB it was against one of the many regs that are stealing 50%+ hands. There are quite a few of them and I have over 1k hands on most of them and I have bet sizing reads as well. I guess I assumed that was implied since I'm never 3betting an unknown in that spot with that hand.

      My real question in this hand is whether I should be giving up on this flop

      Well, then also you should be at least posting his fold to 3bet. :) Or the reason why you did the 3bet. And yes, I would be towards Check/Folding the flop, doubt that we making many hands to fold while he has a lot of PPs in his flatting range and of course traps.
