      This very much depends on villains 3b'ing habits, but obviously if you're not running stats and playing zoom then this can be very hard to figure out.

      As played:
      Lets say he 3b's you with the following range:
      TT+,ATs+,KJs+,AJo+,KQo

      then I would also assume against an unknown that villain is probably cbetting almost all of this range, almost all of the time, especially in a 3bet pot.

      I would also assume that villain probably plays bet/broke with all TP+ and draws against which we would have the following equity:



      Board: Q:heart: T:spade: 7:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     44.14%  35.27%   8.87% { AcQd }
      SB     55.86%  46.98%   8.87% { KK, AdAh, AdAs, AhAs, QsQc, TdTh, TdTc, ThTc, KJs, AhKh, AsQs, KsQs, KcQc, AhJh, AhTh, AdQs, AdQc, AhQs, AhQc, AsQc, KdQs, KdQc, KhQs, KhQc, KsQc, KcQs }



      for this reason I think it would be better to play raise/broke in this spot without knowing the opponent bettter. I.e if he barrells draws / weaker hands. I think it is less exploitable and there is a decent proportion of his range that he would play bet/broke with that we beat..

      Hello xoshix33,

      Preflop: Why do you call the 3bet in first place? Rather 4bet/Fold than Call it while you don't know even how often he does 3bet you.

      As played
      Postflop: How many worse hands do you see him continue? Therefore I don't really see any reason to raise the flop.

      Best Regards.
