Hey man,

depends on STATS, READS ... I will probably write it in every thread, however, it's really important ... like here:

What is his ft3bet? => we can calculate his range aprox.. if he calls somehow polarized it's easy turn call because he will have a lot of hands like:
9h7h, 9h8h, Th9h and with some dynamics he may play it that way ...

without any reads I'm not folding ... we get like 25% to call ...

and we can't be sure he's calling 33-88 to 3bet .. so there is still some draws out there + weaker Ax ...

These limits aren't agressive enough, however, the players tend to stack off more lighter (so AT,AJ is deffo in his range) ...

Once again - everything depends on stats/reads .. IMHO

Hello MattDenness,

Preflop: What's the purpose of the 3bet in first place here? Do you do it for value?

As played
Postflop: If you did the 3bet for value preflop then I don't really see how you can get away here.

Best Regards.

I find that I am far too tight for SH and folding here is very nitty? I can never Call oop?

Again, he could easily be stealing and my hand is to good to be laying down all the time?

Why not? We are keeping his range wide and also keeping his weaker Ax/Qx hands in the play. 3betting for value ain't wrong either if you also expect the guy to be capable of calling with worse Ax/Qx hands or with even worse.
