      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $32.54
      Hero (SB): $10.00
      BB: $20.34
      UTG: $5.29
      UTG+1: $10.00
      MP: $8.65

      LP: $4.95
      CO: $17.50

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:heart: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, LP raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, fold, Hero raises to $1.40, fold, LP calls $1.20, fold

      Flop: ($3.10, 2 players) 4:club: 3:heart: 9:spade:
      Hero bets $1.80, LP raises to $3.55 and is all-in, Hero calls $1.75

      Turn: ($10.20, 2 players) 3:club:

      River: ($10.20, 2 players) Q:spade:

      Hero shows A:heart: A:diamond: (Two Pair, Aces and Threes)
      LP mucks 8:heart: 9:heart: (Two Pair, Nines and Threes)
      Hero wins $9.69

      Postflop is no brainer. I can't fold anymore vs this stack. The question rather: is the preflop sizing ok? I went for a standard 3bet, as if the first raise would have been 4BB not 2BB.

      Also, on flop I bet smaller, to get him in. It's a 3-bet pot and villain had small stack.

      Hello faronel,

      Vs such a stack you could easily even go for $1 bet only and induce him to shove with just overcards. Of course we are not planning to fold either.

      Best Regards.
