      Flop: ($4.30) 8 3 A (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks, BTN bets $2.15, BB folds, Hero calls $2.15

      Turn: ($8.60) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.60, Hero raises to $5.60, BTN raises to $6.45 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.85

      Final Board: 8 3 A 9 7
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$10.00 net)
      BTN showed 4 5 and won $20.43 ($10.43 net)

      stats is 27/27/11 and 20.0 3bet.
      I thought I can pay him off AK and he wouldn't 3bet small with AA.
      and on turn, because of his stack size, I can't trash my TP.
      Should I protect against FD?( and how to deal with william hill's dealer?
      my KK and AA often be killed by QQ and AK and some trash too often on this site lol)

      BB's call is really strong, JJ+ and AQ+, which has you crushed, and you're calling a 3bet oop with a dominated hand.

      I'd rather get it in PF and collect the dead money, which could be profitable if BTN's 3bet range is really wide and BB is a bit stupid, or just fold, which I think is usually best play, especialy oop.

      Because of his 20% 3bet PF I would shove it all in. Some of the times he has a better hand, but he will probably fold enough of the times to make it profitable.

      Als it shows that you make a stand. When you open up your range against ppl who 3bet alot with this kind of plays he would 3bet you less what plays alot nicer :) (atleast when he's adjusting properly else np and keep collecting dead money :) )

      Hello Gonchan,

      Preflop: 4bet it preflop vs his 3betting range + his stack and collect the dead money. No point to Call and play postflop.
      Postflop: Yeah well... not much you can do. Vs his stack it's going to be difficult to fold as well while the guy has even worse Ax hands in his range.

      Best Regards.
