      CO: $26.58 (106.3 bb)
      BTN: $10.40 (41.6 bb)
      SB: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $12.82 (51.3 bb)
      UTG+1: $25.83 (103.3 bb)
      UTG+2: $23.20 (92.8 bb)
      MP1: $26.24 (105 bb)
      MP2: $10 (40 bb)
      MP3: $26.25 (105 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6 5
      7 folds, SB raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $1.35, SB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.15

      Flop: ($5) 3 4 J (2 players)
      SB bets $2, Hero raises to $10.32 and is all-in, SB folds

      Results:
      $9 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: 3 4 J
      SB mucked and lost (-$4.50 net)
      Hero mucked 6 5 and won $8.60 ($4.10 net)


      Stats is 18/15 and 50 BTN steal and 83 ft3b.
      I think this 3 bet is profitable but I doubt flop shove is good.
      Should I call his raise and reevaluate on turn?
      or should I use maximam fold equity on flop?

      Moreover, if I 3bet with A3o as blocker bluff and called.
      After that, on A high flop, should I raise my self or is it good to use it
      as bluff catcher and call villain's 1 barrel?

      Hey,

      You do not have any fold equity with your small betsizes regarding 3betting so 3betting in this case is never going to be profitable with your hands. If you make it a decent sizing, you have a chance of making profit

      As played I like your shove but only because your 3bet preflop yielded 0% Fold equity so he can have any two here

      If you have a rag Ace in a 3bet pot, you are bluff 3betting so ask yourself the question what is the best play on a A 3 9 flop when your Opponent donkbets into you & you have A 2? ( Same stats as you provided me => 18/15 VPIP/PFR)

      Im sure you know the answer yourself

      Best regards,
      Gerv
